In Brief: 4 work deaths per day

FOUR people die at work every day in Cambodia, the director of the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training’s Occupational Health Department told an annual health and safety conference this week. Leng Tong based his mortality figure on International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimates that around 1,500 people die in workplace accidents per year. Leng Tong said the ministry was developing a master plan with technical and financial support from the ILO to improve workplace safety.
