Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 18 / Trend A. Akhundov /
The number of individuals working in the security and health sectors has not grown as much this year as in 2009, Azerbaijani Labor and Social Protection Minister Fizuli Alekperov told media.
However, the situation is improving, he said.
"The number of workplace deaths and injuries also decreased this year," he said.
The encouraging feature is that the wages, not paid in time, were paid more this year.
