Abstract

In many high-income countries, such as Canada and the UK, there has recently been a significant increase in the number of migrant workers. This paper examines the occupational safety and health implications of this phenomenon. We identify a framework for assessing the occupational safety and health vulnerabilities of migrant workers, using a layered approach, which assists in identifying the risk factors. Using this layer of vulnerability framework, we compare the situation of at-risk migrant workers in these two countries.
