Lithuania -Poor health and safety record -February 02, 2014

According to data provided by the State Labour Inspectorate (VDI), 58 people died and 137 suffered severe injuries on the job in 2013. Most of the fatalities and severe injuries occurred during construction or repair work, servicing or repairing electrical equipment or electricity networks, repairing machinery or carrying out storage, loading and unloading work. Most accidents could have been avoided if work was adequately organised and carried out, if equipment met health and safety requirements, if internal health and safety control was properly organised and if the workers carried out all compulsory safety requirements.
