Working and living conditions of construction workers : Comparison between large and small construction sites in Northeastern Thailand.
This study examined differences in working and living conditions of construction workers in large and small construction sites in Northeastern Thailand.
Data were collected by questionnaires, through observation and interviewing.
A total of 812 construction workers from 20 large sites and 24 small sites were studied.
Working and living conditions among the construction workers were generally poor.
However, they were better at the large sites than the small ones.
The data suggest an urgent need to improve sanitation and safety conditions on the construction sites and camp sites, including personal protective devices and improved welfare for the workers and their families.
