Modern workplaces are health risks for workers

The International Labour Organisation said that use of nanotech & reconstituting of places of work are greater risks to workers' physical condition.
International Labour OrganisationIn a declaration, Juan Somavia, ILO director general, stated, "In the wake of the crisis, let us act together to prevent a downward spiral in labour conditions & build recovery founded on safe work."

In a recently released report, the ILO estimates that by the year 2020, around 20% of goods will be based on nanotech regardless of the fact that the impact of exposure to nanomaterials is not properly interpreted.The psychosomatic effects of workplace reconstituting make it hard to attain a healthy work-life stability.

According to the ILO, around 6,300 individuals die on a daily basis because of work-related harms or illnesses that adds up to over 2.3 million demises every year.Besides, 337 million workplace mishaps occur per annum, resulting in extended absences.

"The human cost of this daily tragedy is immeasurable. But the economic cost of working days lost, medical treatment and cash benefits paid out is estimated at 4 percent of global GDP each year. This exceeds the total value of the stimulus packages introduced in the face of the economic crisis," Somavia said.
The report was issued previous to the ILO's 8th annual day for workplace health & safety observed all through the world.
