[EXCLUSIVE] Employees of a local glove factory have been caught carrying out quality control (QC) through dubious means like “put gloves in mouth.”
A series of screenshots was provided to WeirdKaya. Employees could be seen sniffing and putting the gloves into their mouths during a virtual meeting.
“Put gloves into mouth”
Evidence seem to suggest that workers were required to follow the bizarre testing procedures.
A Tweet dating back to September 27 leaked several screenshots claiming that employees have to “smell, see, touch, and put gloves [into the] mouth to testify its quality during every assembly/circle meeting“.
It also claimed that such questionable procedures was to ‘increase the cleanliness and quality mindset of staff and workers towards the gloves produced.'”
However, the Tweet has since been deleted.
A source, who requested anonymity, said the gloves aren’t meant to be tested in such a manner let alone put in mouth.
“The gloves are very dusty during production and it is packed by hand, where the worker’s sweat may drip onto it. Furthermore, there are also silicon particles on the surface of certain gloves.
“Carrying out QC checks like this is extremely unhygienic and hazardous, especially during the pandemic,” he said.
