OSHA has created a new Hispanic Outreach Module for its Compliance Assistance Quick Start Web tool, the agency's Web-based tool that provides a step-by-step guide to identify OSHA requirements and guidance materials for specific workplaces.

The Hispanic Outreach Module will assist employers with a Spanish-speaking workforce to learn more about workplace rights and responsibilities, identify Spanish-language outreach and training resources, and how to work cooperatively with OSHA. In addition, it provides a list of OSHA's Hispanic/English-as-a-second-language coordinators.

"This new Hispanic outreach tool is another step in our ongoing efforts to provide the most useful and accessible information possible so that employers, employees and businesses stay safe, healthy, and successful," said Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Jonathan Snare. "It's important that we continue to do all we can to inform workers and employers about how OSHA can provide assistance to those who need it."

Visitors to the site can use a step-by-step guide to identify OSHA Spanish-language resources on OSHA's website that will help them comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 as well as help them to prevent employee workplace injuries and illnesses. The site also includes OSHA English-Spanish and Spanish-English Dictionaries (with phonetic pronunciation guides) that contain over 2,000 general OSHA and construction safety and health industry terms.

Compliance Assistance Quick Start is on OSHA's Compliance Assistance Web page and provides step-by-step guidance on how to identify OSHA requirements and guidance materials that may apply to specific workplaces. It also has a General Industry module for workplaces that are subject to OSHA's general industry standards, including manufacturing, wholesale, and retail establishments. The General Industry module includes a library that lists a collection of forms, fact sheets, publications, OSHA web pages and electronic tools, and sample programs.
