Compliance Assistance Quick Start
Step 5: How to Work Cooperatively with OSHA to Reach Your Employees
OSHA has a variety of cooperative programs under which employers, employees, and organizations can work with the agency to improve worker safety and health. The following are some examples of OSHA's efforts to reach out to Spanish-speaking workers and their employers.
- Alliance Program. The following are the OSHA Alliances that currently include an Hispanic Outreach component.
- Strategic Partnership Program. A number of OSHA Strategic Partnerships include training and outreach for Spanish-speaking employees.
- Consultation Program. The Consultation Programs received FY 2002 funding to translate compliance assistance materials into Spanish. Sample results include the Texas Workers' Compensation Commission’s Safety and Health Library that lists numerous Spanish-language safety and health fact sheets including hazard communication, heat stress and machine guarding.
