The number of deaths due to work-related accidents dropped sharply last year.
Labor Minister Lee Jae-kap told reporters Wednesday that some 855 people died from work-related accidents in 2019, down 116 on-year and the lowest since relevant data was first compiled in 1999. The figure does not include deaths from diseases.
Deaths from industrial disasters fell below 1,000 for the first time in 2014 and are steadily declining.
But the rate of deaths in industrial accidents per 1 million workers in Korea was estimated at 0.45-0.46 last year, still higher than the OECD average of 0.3.
