Long working hours are killing hundreds of thousands of people a year

The study done by WHO, published on Monday in the journal Environment International, found that deaths from heart disease linked with working long hours increased by 42% between 2000 and 2016.

This work-related disease burden is particularly significant in men (72% of deaths occurred among males).

WHO said there are two ways in which working long hours can cause death.

⛔️First, the psychological stress from working long hours can generate a physiological response, triggering reactions in the cardiovascular system and lesions that cause a change in tissue.

⛔️The second is through health-harming behavior in response to stress, including smoking, drinking alcohol, poor diet, physical inactivity and impaired sleep and poor recovery — all considered risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

“Working 55 hours or more per week is a serious health hazard,” Dr. Maria Neira, director of WHO’s Department of Environment, Climate Change and Health said in a statement.

🎯”It’s time that we all, governments, employers, and employees wake up to the fact that long working hours can lead to premature death.”🎯
