Long Working Hours Are Killing 745,000 People A Year

Provided By - Video Elephant on May 18, 2021
Working long hours is killing hundreds of thousands of people every year. This is according to a new study by the World Health Organisation(WHO) and the International Labour Organisation. In 2016, 745,000 people died from stroke and heart disease associated with long working hours. This is an increase of almost 30% from 2000. Most of these people were male and middle-aged or older. People living in Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific region were the most affected. Working 55 hours or more a week is associated with a 35% higher risk of stroke. This is compared to people that work 35 to 40 hours a week. Those working more than 55 hours a week also have a 17% higher risk of dying from ischemic heart disease. What we want to do with this information is promote more action, more protection of workers, Maria Neira, Director of the WHO's Department of Environment, Climate Change and Health.
