Peruvian labor regulator, Sunafil, could fine the nation’s key iron ore producer, Shougang Hierro Peru, following a site inspection, SteelOrbis has learned.

Sunafil inspected Shougang Hierro Peru in February, following employee claims that the company has failed to follow Covid-19 safety protocols.

A media report from Diario Correo said Sunafil was considering fining the Peruvian iron ore producer in about $75,216 (PEN 283,756).

Sunafil found out that Shougang Hierro Peru didn’t comply with the cleaning and safety protocols the company has established to avoid Covid-19 at its Marcona iron ore mine.

Shougang also reportedly failed to take the measures needed to fix the problems reported by the regulator.
