BEIJING — China will check all dangerous substances across the whole country, the production safety watchdog said on Aug 18.

The checks will continue for about half a month from next Aug 18 to Sept 10, said a notice on the website of the State Administration of Work Safety, targeting industries related to dangerous chemicals, explosives, fireworks, elevators, non-coal mines, public transportation and ports.

The emphasis on safety follows two huge explosions at a warehouse used to store dangerous chemicals in Tianjin, North China, on Aug 12, killing at least 114 people.
