Summit for Latino Worker Health and Safety

OSHA brought together nearly 1,000 participants to the Houston summit, including Latino workers, community- and faith-based groups, employers, unions, consulates, the medical community, health and safety professionals, and government representatives.

The summit's goal: Reducing injuries and illnesses among Latino workers by enhancing knowledge of their workplace rights and improving their ability to exercise those rights.

The summit's workshops and exhibits highlighted employers and companies with effective education programs to reach Latino workers, successful community-based and public-private partnerships to educate and empower workers about workplace hazards, and many free resources that OSHA, other agencies and nonprofit organizations make available to help small business owners prevent worker illness, injury and death on the job.
