In the past 10 years, the number of foreign construction workers has increased by more than 10 times, and 1349 work disasters occurred to foreign workers in 2014. Foreign construction workers who are brought to Korea assume physically demanding jobs that domestic construction workers avoid, and, due to the industrys structural problems, they are vulnerably exposed to poor circumstances, including insecurity, employment instability, receiving lower wage, wages being unpaid and overtime working.Moreover, although they may not intend to permanently say in Korea, they still need time for social and psychological adjustment while they do their jobs in Korea. These inferior conditions can result in a significant job stress and consequently cause construction disasters. However, if the result is to derive a relationship between the both, or when you want to find the results, control effect must be verified. Although moderator factors are the same operation and exposed individually, personal factors and environmental factors are causes because it bring difference in the way they respond to the situation.
Therefore, as a study on protracting elements of job stress as a way to prevent construction disasters of increasing foreign construction workers, this study has compared and analyzed job stress level of both domestic and foreign construction workers. To provide a guideline as a means to prevent associated construction disasters, we have analyzed 3 aspects of job stress: cause, meditation and consequences.We believe this research can serve as a basic guideline for the job stress management of foreign construction workers.
