The ministry of Labor registered a total of 444 industrial accidents for the year 2020 in Suriname. Of those 444 workers injured, 39 were seriously injured, and 58 were reasonably injured. 336 were recorded as not serious. The number of industrial accidents in 2020 resulting in lost lives of workers was 11. 292 of these injuries and deaths were related to working with Materials, Substances and Radiations And the Working environment.

Aside from the economic cost, there is an intangible cost, not fully recognized in these figures, of the immeasurable human suffering caused by poor occupational safety and health (OSH) conditions.
This is tragic and regrettable because this suffering is largely preventable.

Psychosocial risks, work-related stress and non-communicable diseases are of growing concern for many workers in all parts of the world. At the same time, many workers remain challenged by persistent work-related safety and health risks and it is important not to overlook these populations as the world of work continues to transform.

Other emerging OSH risks are advancing technologies, changing demographics and changes in work organization on account of globalization resulting nonstandard form of employment. 
Taking precautions and investing in a healthy and safe workplace not only may it be a requirement by national laws and regulations, but also it makes business sense.

Companies that ensure that their workforce is safe and healthy enjoy higher levels of engagement, of motivation and overall better productivity. Likewise, workers that feel safe and are healthy and well while working, they can gain in motivation and perform well.

In this regard, the Vereniging Surinaams Bedrijfsleven is again offering her guidance towards the Essentials of Occupational Safety and Health through a newly developed training. Now lagerly through her digital platform.
