Foxconn Is Installing Safety Nets on Buildings?

Foxconn is getting plenty of attention over working conditions and employee suicides at its factories, but it seems that the electronics manufacturer may have somehow managed to quietly start installing some sort of suicide safety nets along its buildings.

According to a tipster, this photo is of Foxconn-owned buildings and shows some recently installed safety nets which are supposedly being put in place to prevent individuals from committing suicide by jumping off building roofs. It's possible that the nets serve some sort of other purpose, but this is the information we've received so far. [Thanks, Tipster!]
