74 people died at their workplaces in Kazakhstan this year

If we consider the general statistics of occupational injuries in Kazakhstan, judging by the figures for the period since 2018, the number of victims in the Republic of Kazakhstan has decreased, albeit slightly: from 1.57 thousand to 1.46 thousand people. Over the past few years, the average number of Kazakhstanis injured at work has been around 1.5 thousand people a year. Over 640 people have already been injured in the 1st HY 2023, the monitoring agency Energyprom.kz writes.
74 people died at their workplaces in Kazakhstan this year

As for the statistics on lethal outcome, the situation has not changed for the better over the years. The number of deaths due to industrial injuries is fixed at around 200 people every year. According to the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan (MLSP), 220 people died at the workplace in the country in 2018, in 2022 there were 203 people. For January-June of the current year, there is data on the death of 69 workers. Including those who died on August 17 in Shakhtinsk, the total number of those who lost their lives at work is already 74 people.

The sad superiority in terms of number of both injured and dead among the by regions is held by the Karaganda region. Over the past year, 180 people were injured and 28 people died due to work accidents and accidents in the region. East Kazakhstan, Kostanay and Pavlodar regions, as well as Almaty, were included in the top five most industrially unsafe zones.

Kazakhstan is far from the best position in the world ranking of occupational injuries, which is maintained by the International Labor Organization (ILO) analysts. For example, in terms of number of injuries at the workplace per 100,000 employees, our country is in the 14th place out of 83. The neighboring countries, such as Kyrgyzstan (9th place), Uzbekistan (11th place), and Russia (21st place) are not far from Kazakhstan in terms of industrial injury index.
