Differences in assessment, handling and prevention of serious occupational disorders? Meanings of norms andresources related to gender, ethnicity and type of work
One of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 8.8) is to promote a safe and secure work environment and toreduce serious work injuries, especially among women migrants. International studies show increased risks forimmigrants, but in Sweden there are no studies. However, reports indicate that serious work injuries areassessed and handled differently in relation to gender, country of birth, occupation and industry. The studyexplore the mechanisms behind and how it can be prevented. The overall purpose is to analyze how the meanings of workers' gender, country of birth, socio-economicconditions and age are manifested in the management and assessment of serious work injuries in men andwomen-dominated jobs with low educational requirements.
