500 Killed by Accidents at Work



He said these are dramatic numbers but which hardly draw public attention.

Mr Lamina explained that their organisations plans on reducing the toll of accidents in the country; adding that accidents take a considerable economic toll on nations, companies and individuals, but yet still; accidents do not get much publicity.

According to International Labour Office statistics, 120 million occupational accidents occur annually at workplaces worldwide.

Of these, 210,000 are fatal accidents.
