Abstract

Construction differs markedly from many other types of manufacturing in that the nature of the work exacerbates the safety and health risks faced by workers. Even for workers who have health care coverage, the authors point out, the transient nature of the industry makes it difficult to trace an individual's exposure to health hazards.
