745,000 deaths linked to Long working hours – WHO, ILO

745,000 deaths linked to Long working hours – WHO, ILO




No fewer than 745,000 deaths from stroke and ischemic heart disease as a result of long working hours were recorded in 2016.

The latest estimates by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Labour Organisation (ILO) showed that the death figure represented an increase of 29 per cent since 2000.

These estimates were contained in a study titled “Global, regional, and national burdens of ischemic heart disease and stroke attributable to exposure to long working hours for 194 countries, 2000–2016: A systematic analysis from the WHO/ILO Joint Estimates of the Work-related Burden of Disease and Injury.”

 

The study comes as the COVID-19 pandemic shines a spotlight on managing working hours, and accelerating developments that could feed the trend towards increased working time.
