EHS Assessment Workshop

Guangdong & Shanghai | July 2013

According to the International Labor Association (ILO), 2.02 million people die each year from work-related diseases. This means that every 15 seconds, a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease. A recent study, “Economic Burden of Occupational Injury and Illness in the United States,” estimates the economic cost of occupational injuries and illnesses to be roughly $250b a year in the USA. [1] It is expected that similar economic impacts could be expected in other countries around the world, but such data may be hard to find in certain regions. The report “Firms overlook occupational diseases[2] reveals that only 0.23 out of every 100,000 subscribers to Industrial Compensation Insurance were recognized as having a work-related disease in 2010 in Korea. For comparison, the rate was 10.44 in France, 9.68 for Belgium, 6.53 for Finland, and 6.07 for Germany.

What are common occupational hazards and how are they overlooked? How do we create a long-term, sustainable mechanism for occupational health management? You must want to know the answers.
