Chinese factory leads in safety

Leviton is a Chinese company that prides itself on safety. Reason Magazine goes behind the scenes of their factory in Dongguan where they have installed a state-of-the-art sprinkler system.

The project, in partnership with FM Global, has earned Leviton an HPR designation and award.

FM Global Account Engineer Grace Ries admits that some Chinese managers think loss prevention is a Western philosophy but explains "fire doesn't know whether you're in the US or China. Leviton gets that."

Also in the new Reason Magazine: technology risk, El Niño, climate change and much more.
