ASSE and NIOSH are proud to share a landmark report that explores the intersecting vulnerabilities facing young Hispanic immigrants in the construction industry.
The report, Overlapping vulnerabilities: The occupational safety and health of young immigrant workers in small construction firms, focuses on the factors behind why Hispanic immigrants, small businesses with fewer than 20 employees and young workers under age 25 – are at increased risk for injury and death when working in the construction industry.
