Methodological Issues Related to Researching OHS of Migrant Workers: a cross‐national comparison.

Abstract : Our study considers both the methodological issues, and potential solutions to these issues, that have plagued research into the OHS of migrant workers, and also the currently available information about this population in five countries, wherein we hope to apply our own proposed methodology. We specifically note the influence of cultural and institutional divergences on this research, and accept that, because of these divergences, no one "best way" can necessarily apply to the study of migrant workers. Our research sits within a number of intersecting concerns, all of which we can document in our cross-national comparison: Globalisation and the increasing movement of people; The vulnerability of migrant workers and their tendency to cluster at the periphery of the labour market; The precarious and unregulated nature of this peripheral labour market; The consequent over-representation of migrant workers in data on workplace illness and injury rates; The difficulty researchers face in attempting to fully determine the extent of the problem; The methodological issues with identifying an "invisible" group
