abstract

This chapter focuses on the under-researched topic of occupational safety and health vulnerabilities (OSH) of posted workers across the EU. Through the lens of the layers of vulnerability approach, we present an account of the multiple OSH vulnerabilities and institutional challenges this segment of the labour force is exposed to and discuss how this is linked to their cross-border labour mobility within the European Union. The most frequently reported areas that produce OSH-related vulnerabilities in the nine countries include types of employer, employment and contractual arrangements, access to training, working conditions, access to healthcare and housing, and access to collective representation.
