Example text

Although the household protects the undeclared migrant worker from the police and labour inspections, at the same time it excludes the worker from external aid, such as labour unions, in case of exploitation. However, migrant women also use intimacy to de-emphasise servitude (Parreñas 2001). Domestic work is characterised by particular occupational hazards. According to a study conducted among professional elderly care workers in Northern Ireland, the home care workers experienced health hazards, injuries in moving and handling (related to hygiene and infection), verbal abuse and physical harassment from the cared for person, but also expo­ sure to the cared for persons’ pets and unsafe home equipment (Taylor & Donnelly 2006: 245).

The context of how socially embedded a person is influences the risk strategies adopted: either group-based strategies or more individualised ones. Douglas introduced a model that categorises responses to risk and is known as the grid/group model. The model is based on two ideal types of social organisation in terms of the group’s approach to risk. In the first type, members of a community have strong commitment to strengthening and maintaining internal bonds. They are unwilling to work out the risk-related situation via internal conflict; instead, they will tend to exclude from the group those who have challenged the group’s norms through risky behaviour.

They are unwilling to work out the risk-related situation via internal conflict; instead, they will tend to exclude from the group those who have challenged the group’s norms through risky behaviour. For that reason, they place the responsibility for disasters on victims of the disaster and their families. Blame and punishment play a leading role in this form of social organisation. In the second type, the members of a community have strong dedication to individual activity and fair competition; the interac­ tion in the group is based more on internal conflict than on solidarity.
