Employee death linked to overwork

From NHK

Japanese labor authorities have officially linked the death of a construction worker to excessive overwork in a project to build the main stadium of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympics.

The 23-year-old worker of a subcontractor killed himself in March. He was a first-year employee of the firm, which was doing ground improvement work for the new national stadium.

The lawyer for his family revealed part of the labor authorities' investigation into the death. He said the worker, who oversaw quality control, put in 190 hours of overtime in the month before he committed suicide. The lawyer said this resulted in a mental problem.

The man's parents said it is extremely regrettable that they could not save their son, whom they called very tenacious. They said they hope his employers do their utmost to prevent a recurrence.

The firm's officials said they take the man's death very seriously, and apologized to the family. They said they will improve conditions to prevent further death from overwork.
