workplace deaths and resource wars related

Looked at on an international scale workplace related deaths outnumber those killed in wars, and the wars are trade wars for resources like fossil fuels or Coltan for mobile phones to supply the same Corporations that are so dangerous to work for. 
Asbestos is still being mined and exported by Canada, uranium is still being mined and exported by Australia just these two socalled "peacefull" societies export deaths on a scale hardly considered. 
The ILO did a report of 2 million deaths a year a few years back and it has not got any safer unless the workplaces have unions independent of corruption by the State (Politicians) or Corporations.
