A series of work diseases such as mouse hand or repetitive strain injury, tech neck and death from stress have all been included in the National Occupational Disease Prevention Law Amendment, the Chengdu Daily reported Tuesday.

The move shows more care for people suffering from ailments that occur as a result of work or occupational activity.

Law of the People’s Republic of China on Prevention and Control of Occupational Diseases has taken effect after modified and proved by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress.

“With the modification of occupational diseases’ definition, more work diseases such as mouse hand, tech neck and death from stress are included in the law,” said Huang Hanlin, one of the major draftsmen.

The new law covers more working people with a broader work disease range, which gears the occupational disease coverage to international standards.
