Construction is one of the highest risk industries with high rates of worker fatalities and non-fatal injuries. Residential construction has unique challenges compared to commercial construction, and is typified by fewer safety resources, lower levels of work organization, and small, often scattered crews with less safety oversight. Apprentices who have the least amount of training and experience are often placed in the riskiest jobs. These differences in work organization between residential and commercial construction may result in differences in health outcomes and risk behaviors. The purpose of this project was to compare risks and supports for safety and health between residential and commercial apprentice construction workers.
You will learn:
- Which traditional health and safety risks and policies differ between apprentices in residential versus commercial construction work
- How work organization and workforce factors differ by type of construction
- How apprentices in residential perceive their health compared to apprentices in commercial work
Apprentice carpenters employed by residential contractors report significantly higher safety and health risks, fewer supports for health and safety, and poorer health outcomes than apprentices in commercial work.
