This paper analyzes the situation with occupational safety in the Republic of North Macedonia, including non-fatal and fatal accidents at work in the last decade (2010 – 2021). According to the official data published in the annual reports of the Macedonian Occupational Safety and Health Association (MOSHA) and statistical data processing, there were a total of 1708 accidents at work in the last decade, out of which, unfortunately, 23.30% or 398 accidents ended fatally. By far the most numerous were accidents in Public Administration and Defense, 461, but with the lowest mortality rate of 5.21%. On the other hand, 259 accidents were registered with Households during the whole period, but the mortality reached an incredible 51.74%, which is an extremely high number. Also, a characteristic sector is the Construction, where out of a total of 315 accidents, 25.40% are deaths. These data are even more alarming given that a large number of accidents at work remain unregistered.
Improved sustainable concepts should achieve higher quality workplaces and prevent injuries and deaths, which should be the primary goal of every employer. Social and economic benefits of better health and safety at work are the main objectives of stronger national strategy, that will lead to many benefits like reducing healthcare costs, sickness absence, and improving working methods.
