Objective: To compare occupational psychosocial hazards in green collar versus non-green collar workers. Methods: Standard Occupational Classification codes were used to link the 2010 National Health Interview Survey to the 2010 Occupational Information Network Database. Multivariable logistic regressions were used to predict job insecurity, work life imbalance, and workplace harassment in green versus non-green collar workers. Results: Most participants were white, non-Hispanic, 25 to 64 years of age, and obtained greater than a high school education. The majority of workers reported no job insecurity, work life imbalance, or workplace harassment. Relative to non-green collar workers (n=12,217), green collar workers (n=2,588) were more likely to report job insecurity (Odds ratio [OR]=1.13; 95% confidence interval [CI]=1.02 to 1.26) and work life imbalance (1.19; 1.05 to 1.35), but less likely to experience workplace harassment (0.77; 0.62 to 0.95). Conclusions: Continuous surveillance of occupational psychosocial hazards is recommended in this rapidly emerging workforce.
