Xinhua: Occupational disease takes huge tolls on China

From Xinhua:

Occupational disease, a health problem caused by exposure to workplace health hazards, is taking enormous tolls, both human and economic, on China, the China Daily said on Saturday.

Every year, the direct economic loss caused by occupational disease or work-related injuries amounts to 100 billion yuan (12 billion US dollars), while the indirect loss stands at about 200 billion yuan (24 billion US dollars), Wang Dexue, vice minister of the State Administration of Work Safety (SAWS), was quoted as saying.

China Labour Bulletin has also reported on this subject.
