OSHA says it has made immigrant workplace safety a priority within the agency and is committed to identifying ways to improve the safety and health of immigrant and other hard-to-reach workers. While overall workplace fatalities have dropped 20 percent in the last decade, workplace fatalities among Hispanic workers, especially those working in the construction industry, have risen almost 35 percent in the same period. OSHA is taking a multi-pronged approach to improving safety and health for, and providing outreach and assistance to, the Hispanic community.
OSHA offers numerous Hispanic outreach compliance tools, programs and training resources to help employers and Spanish-speaking workers prevent and reduce injuries and illnesses in the workplace.
The OSHA website, www.osha.gov, provides access to OSHA's Spanish-language information and Hispanic compliance assistance outreach tools, programs and training resources including Hispanic-related web pages, electronic assistance tools, cooperative programs, training, and pages devoted to publications, fact sheets, videos, and much more.
