2 million people die every year due to work stress; Shocking statistics came to the fore

According to a study released by the United Nations on Friday, about two million people die each year from work-related causes, including long working hours and illnesses related to air pollution. According to a study by the World Health Organization and the International Labor Organization, work-related stress and illness are responsible for more than one million deaths in 2016.

“It is shocking to see so many people literally dying because of their jobs,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Gebreius, hoping the report would be a wake-up call. The study considered 19 occupational risk factors, including long working hours, workplace air pollution, asthma, carcinogens and noise.
It found that work-related deaths were uneven among workers, men, and people over the age of 54 in Southeast Asia and the West Pacific.

An estimated 745,000 people die each year as a result of long-term heart disease, according to a new World Health Organization report. A comprehensive report released on Friday found that air pollution in the workplace was also a major cause of death. In 2016, 450,000 people died due to air pollution, while 360,000 people died due to injuries.

The World Health Organization’s technical director, Frank Pega, said other deaths, including rising temperatures related to climate change, were not currently included, and that infectious diseases such as covid 19 were not included.
