As part of the Safety Training Knowledge Base (STKB; Output 1), a thorough review of the grey literature was conducted, focusing on safety training activities for low-skilled and migrant workers in the construction industry, both within the EU (in particular the UK, Spain and Italy, as the project partners) and internationally (mainly the USA).

A total of 416 relevant sources were identified during the review. They have been organised into four catalogues, each of which relates specifically to migrant and low qualified workers within the construction industry: –

  1. Catalogue of safety training programmes, courses, activities and tools, including assessment and certification, for both trainers and trainees.
  2. Catalogue of studies, reports and databases providing indexes and indicators relating to health and safety, accidents, injuries and fatalities.
  3. Catalogue of organisations, institutions and professional bodies associated with health and safety.
  4. Catalogue of laws, norms and regulations related to health and safety.

For further details about each one, including links to the sources themselves, please select the relevant catalogue.

Also, as part of the Safety Training Knowledge Base, a series of focus groups and interviews were conducted with migrant workers, non-migrant workers, supervisors, trainers and occupational safety and health professionals in the UK, Spain and Italy, to explore their views on safety training for migrant workers in the construction industry.
