OSHA formed an alliance Thursday with the American Red Cross that is aimed at increasing emergency preparedness and disease prevention education and expanding first-aid information for individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) and youth workers.

OSHA and the ARC will help prepare employers and employees to respond to disasters, life-threatening injuries and emergencies. The organizations will also provide information, guidance and access to training resources on safety and health topics such as emergency preparedness, disease prevention and first-aid in the workplace.

The organizations will work together to deliver training and education materials in a language suited for the target audience and to provide expertise in communicating such information to employers and employees.

Founded in 1881, the American Red Cross works to help make families, communities and workplaces safer, provide relief to victims of disasters and help prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.
