Sea of coffins sounds alarm over work-related accidents in Italy

March 20, 2024

A thousand coffins filled one of Rome's most beautiful squares Tuesday as a trade union made a powerful statement on the number of deaths in work-related accidents. "Zero is still too far away," read another sign in the square as curious tourists took snapshots. Last year, 1,041 people died in workplace accidents in Italy. Fatal accidents in the workplace regularly make headlines in the Italian press, each time sparking a debate on risk prevention. The European Union's three worst performers are Lithuania, Malta and Latvia, while work-related fatalities are lowest in the Netherlands, Finland and Germany.
