Car brand restarts production after fatal accident

Subaru's factories in Japan managed to be quiet for a week, because they came up again after a work accident that claimed the life of an employee.

On Monday of this week, Subaru's three factories in Japan resumed work after a tragic work accident at one.

That's what Automotive News writes.

The accident claimed the life of a 60-year-old man – who had worked for Subaru for 35 years – as he operated a remote-controlled crane to move 25-ton molds around the factory.

It was one of these molds that collapsed, fell on the 60-year-old man and caused his death.

After the death, Subaru halted production at the three factories. That meant a temporary halt to the Forester, Crosstrek, Outback and Impreza models that Subaru ships to and trades in Australia.

Also at Subaru's main factory in the city of Gunma and at a factory where engines and gearboxes are manufactured, production came to a standstill.

Shortly after the accident in Japan, another employee died at a car factory. This time in southern Italy. The 52-year-old man, who was employed by a subcontractor, was working on machine maintenance when the accident happened.
