Trade unions: 12 people die at work every day


According to the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), the number of workplace fatalities in the European Union should be lowered to zero from the current average of 12 per day.

According to the organization, 12 people do not make it home from work in the European Union on average each working day.

394 workers in Spain passed away at work in the first half of 2022, which is 60 more workers than during the same period in 2021. The ETUC stated on Twitter that "it is high time to prioritize human lives over increased profits." The organization has created a petition urging the European Union to take the necessary steps to put an end to workplace fatalities in this area.

The message emphasizes that despite the advancements of the previous five years, Europe is still far from eliminating fatal workplace accidents.
