The National Social Security Fund recorded 6,068 cases of on-the-job injuries in 2010 for workers at 1,920 organisations that are members of the fund, according to the agency’s annual report. The injuries included 34 deaths, 354 serious injuries and 5,676 minor injuries. A high proportion of women were injured on the job, with 5,878 injuries attributed to female employees and 1,733 to men. Garment factory employees accounted for 5, 456 of the injured, including 4,547 women and 909 men. Twenty-seven deaths occurred at garment factories in 2010. The report also noted that a high number of injures were the result of road accidents, considered by the Fund to constitute on-the-job injuries. More than 2 billion riel (about US$600,000) was paid out by the fund to injured workers last year. Members of the NSSF account for thirteen percent of businesses in Cambodia and include companies working in areas such as garment production factories, banking, hotels, supermarkets, airports and construction.
