Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019 - 12pm EST: Fatality Rates in Construction Vary 3-Fold: Do OSHA and Workers’ Compensation Play a Role?
Presented by: Wayne B. Gray, Professor of Economics, Clark University and Executive Director, Boston Federal Statistical Research Data Center, and John Mendeloff, Professor, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs and Environmental and Occupational Health, University of Pittsburgh
This 30 minute webinar will describe the variation in construction industry fatality rates across states and over time (starting in 1992) and provide estimates of the effects of both OSHA enforcement and state worker’s compensation policies on the rates. It will also explore different approaches to measuring how these programs might affect employer behavior.
