IMO B

(A) establish standards that would guarantee wider access to people with past health problems and to workers changing jobs who -A conjunction is required to join this phrases with original clause.
(B) establishing standards that would guarantee wider access to people with past health problems and to workers who are changing jobs and -ing form correctly modifies the part given before this phrase. "to people" and "to workers" are parallel
(C) to establish standards that would guarantee wider access to people with past health problems and to workers who change jobs that -use of "that" in the end- "....who change jobs that otherwise could be..." sounds awkward
(D) for establishing standards that would guarantee wider access for people with past health problems and workers changing jobs who -incorrect idiom "for establish", incorrect idiom "access for"
(E) for the establishment of standards that would guarantee wider access for people with past health problems and workers who are changing jobs that -"for the establishment" sounds wordy, incorrect idiom "access for"

In the exam hall, it might be a good means to go about this question this way; look at who could be uncovered. The workers could be uncovered and not the jobs

IN A and D- ‘jobs who’ otherwise could be uncovered for months. In C and E ‘jobs that’ otherwise could be uncovered for months. In A and D, ' jobs who' is horrible, in addition. So all the four are out.

B is the only choice that skillfully dodges the modification trap by using the co-ordinate conjunction ‘and’, splitting the sentence.

I also vote for B. The other ones just don't work (try reading them aloud they sound awful).

Hi...
Why is "that" in option C and E doesn't make sense?
Eg:
In a firm, say where 100 workers are working... If i get the job done with 90 workers for say 6 months and then recruit 10 more in the second half of the year.... this would mean jobs, uncovered for the workers... how can we say only workers can be uncovered and not jobs?

Correct me if I am wrong in my understanding...

Answer will be D because at the end it is mentioned that otherwise could be uncovered for the months.

So,there must be some one who will be uncovered.
Therefore we should put who

Something can be uncovered, how someone can be uncovered...

In option B can anyone explain the use of last word 'and' because of that word I selected the other option.
