Abstract

Given the very fact of rapid ageing of population and drastic decline in skilled and experienced construction workers, it is anticipated that the problem of shortage of construction workforce in Hong Kong will exacerbate in the coming decades. In order to alleviate the problem, the work proposed here aims at identifying the effective measures for extending the working lives of the construction workforce in Hong Kong by proposing a conceptual model for examining the influence of individual factors and work-related factors on work ability. A better understanding of the potential factors affecting the current and future work ability of construction workers will greatly assist the formulation of evidence based interventions to retaining the workforce in the Hong Kong construction industry.
