Research Report on Migrant Workers in High-risk Industry



This report is a result of a survey in the four Chinese cities of Hangzhou, Tianjin City, Jiaozua and Cangzhou. Nearly 1,000 questionnaires were received and more than 100 interviews were conducted with department leaders who are familiar with the construction industry, HR of construction companies, as well as NGO practitioners working for migrant workers.

The construction industry was the focus of this survey due to its high risk nature and because over 75% of workers are migrant workers. The survey explores characteristics such as employment status, training status, and other basic characteristics such as age and income.
