According to CCTV news, the National Commission on Health and Health held a press conference in the afternoon to introduce the "Occupational Health Protection Act" in China's "Healthy Action Act (2019-2030)".
Currently, the number of reported cases of occupational disease in China remains high. Since 2010, an average of 28,000 new cases of occupational disease have been reported. As of the end of last year, China reported a total of 975,000 occupational diseases, of which 873,000 are occupational pneumonia, accounting for about 90% of the total number of reported occupational diseases. . Due to the low coverage of exercise health examinations and the imperfect employment system, the actual number of cases is much higher than the number of reported cases. Secondly, there are many businesses with occupational diseases and injuries (contact with occupational diseases). According to an example survey, about 12 million companies have occupational disease hazards, and more than 200 million workers are exposed to various occupational diseases. In addition to the economic transformation and upgrading of the Chinese economy, occupational diseases are more diverse and complex. The traditional work hazards were not fundamentally controlled. The social and psychological factors and adverse ergonomic factors have led to occupational diseases such as mental disorders and musculoskeletal injuries that are becoming more prominent. . The implementation of "Workplace Health Protection" begins primarily with individual workers, employers and the government, and proposes a number of specific measures to reduce work concerns.
