BEIJING, Oct. 30 (Xinhua) -- Accidents involving special equipment, such as elevators and boilers, claimed 12 lives and injured six people in China last month, a government official said Tuesday.

The death toll was one fewer from the same period last year, Li Yuanping, spokesman of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), said at a news briefing.

Li said the causes of such accidents were due to illegal operation, lack of safety awareness and unspecified safety management responsibilities.

The AQSIQ has asked local authorities to strengthen its checks over special equipment, including elevators, cable cars and entertainment facilities, to ensure public safety.
