Abstract: Green jobs have been introduced in different industries and sectors as a result of the current sustainable trend. These seek both social and environmental improvements, while its implementation generates new jobs. The construction industry has been the first specific sector of the economy that was addressed in the Green Jobs initiative of the International Labor Organization (ILO). But not all are benefits, as the use of new recyclable materials, new more ecological designs or new work processes, generate new occupational hazards. For this reason, in order to know the benefits and risks presented by green construction, this work carries out in the first place a bibliometric analysis of the works published between 2014 and 2018 on this subject, and then, a deductive content analysis.
