Over 2,000 occupational accidents were recorded in Mozambique between 2015 and 2018, resulting in the death of 42 workers, the total permanent disability of 26, and the partial disability of 201.
The Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Security revealed on Wednesday (December 4) that since 2015 there have been 41,499 inspections, in which the General Labour Inspectorate (IGT) detected 60,032 violations of working condition standards, “with greater incidence on violations related to health and safety conditions in the workplace, lack of written contracts, failure to channel contributions to the INSS and the hiring of foreign labour”.
Vitoria Diogo revealed that 12,899 of these infractions resulted in fines “and 47,133 received warnings, confirming the pedagogical, didactic and guiding character of our IGT”.
Speaking at the opening IV Consultative Council of the General Inspectorate of Laboor, the minister also mentioned that in the inspections, which covered 828,407 workers, 3,923 foreigners “were found to be in irregular situations, therefore suspended from their work activities and the respective entities sanctioned”.
“Regrettably, from 2015 to 2018, 2,044 occupational accidents were recorded and reported, of which 42 resulted in death, 26 workers acquiring total permanent disability, 201 workers partial permanent disability, and 1,775 workers temporary disability,” Diogo said. “There are still entities which do not report work accidents,” she noted.Source: A Verdade
