When comparing the 2012 statistics of industrial accidents to previous years, Mongolia’s accident numbers have increased 1.1 times, the number of victims increased by 1.65 times, fatality increased by 3.17 times, and disability due to accidents rose by 3.07 times. Ironically, a single handed state insurance system is obsolete when the risk materializes and someone is injured or dies from an occupational accident. From our analysis, it is clear that the state-only insurance system should be developed further to include more varieties from the private insurance sector to at least cover the economic losses from accidents.

In the last 5 years, there have been 2,027 industrial accidents, leading to loss of 350 lives and injuries to 1,200 individuals. We suspect that this statistic is likely less than the real numbers because of non-reported incidents due to out of court settlements between victims and faulty parties.

A checklist based risk management system coupled with effective insurance services can lead to a reduced level of occupational accidents.

During the recent period of economic growth fueled by the mining sector, a number of industrial and occupational accidents have occurred and associated economic loss has been on the rise significantly. For instance, many people were shocked to learn of the notorious construction incident which occurred in September 2012 claiming two children’s lives. Another careless construction operation in the middle of the city also collapsed, taking the life of an innocent teenager who was walking home from school.
