Latest reports in Chinese media indicate that many workers and drivers employed by the company had no hazardous or explosive materials training.
The original site permit had a maximum allowance for 10 tons of sodium cyanide. Officials now estimate that 200 to 700. Tons of sodium cyanide may have been on site.
Also there is some confusion about whether the company had its own firefighting company on site or were relying on near by firefighting stations for support. Both state owned hazardous materials companies in the same port have their own hazardous materials firefighting outfits.
