Of all cardiovascular deaths in the working age population, 10%-20% are work-related; as are 25% of 1.7 million lung cancer diagnoses and 11% of depressions. Employers and regulators could have prevented many of these deaths and illnesses through workplace safety interventions and employee protection laws. In this quick-read overview of years of in-depth research, the World Health Organization explores the health risks of various types of work. The report also offers practical suggestions for improvements to the workplace that can help combat a wide range of infectious and noncommunicable diseases.
