Factory fainting: Garment workers fall ill in Kampong Speu

Factory fainting
About 60 workers at the Anful Garment factory in Kampong Speu’s Samrong Tong district reported feeling dizzy yesterday, while three fainted, officials said.

Phun Phum, president of the Cambodian Workers Union at the factory, said the fainting workers were not “seriously sick” but  were sent to hospital as a precaution.

The union president also said she did not think the incident was caused by the factory environment, but rather, by the health of the individual workers.

However, 37-year-old worker Srey Mom, who observed the fainting, reported smelling a foul odour beforehand.  

Administrative manager Va Chenda denied the factory’s culpability in the fainting.

“The doctor told me they lacked glucose. I assure you it was not caused by any chemicals,” she said.

Anful Garment factory made headlines last year after more than 200 women collapsed in two separate mass fainting incidents.
