Park (with collaborator Anna Stansbury) will investigate the extent to which the availability and quality of workers’ outside labor market options affect their health and safety in the workplace. Using data from approximately 15 million workers’ compensation claims from California workplaces, Park finds that  better outside-occupation options are associated with reductions in the workplace injury rate.
