On the 16th, the Naha Labor Standards Inspection Office suspended Machi Clean (Nanjo City) and the director of the company’s Shimajiri Environmental Beautification Center on suspicion of violating the Industrial Safety and Health Act, alleging that they did not take measures to prevent danger to workers when pressing empty cans. A man in his 40s was referred to the Naha District Public Prosecutors Office. According to the police station, in August 2022, a man in his 20s who was working on a press at the Shimajiri Environmental Beautification Center in Nanjo City had his right arm caught in the rotating part of a machine, resulting in the amputation of his right arm.
