China has the largest working population in the world—about 776 million in 2018, and most workers spend half their lives working. The Chinese Government prioritized occupational health in the action plan of Healthy China 2030 as one of its 15 major health projects. Last week, the National Health Commission (NHC) announced the latest official data on the country’s occupational health status and unveiled China’s strategy to address the challenges in occupational health. More than 975 000 cases of occupational illness occurred in 2018, and 90% of reported occupational diseases were pneumoconiosis. Of those sampled in 2018, about 12 million businesses presented occupational health risks, with more than 200 million workers exposed to multiple risks, including dust, chemicals, and poison. However, the actual burden of occupational diseases in China is likely to be underestimated because of the low frequency of occupational health checks and the narrow range of diseases defined in the occupational diseases list.
