NEW YORK -- The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has produced a Spanish-language public service announcement (PSA) featuring World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) wrestler Rey Mysterio.
The PSA, developed by OSHA's New York Region and the WWE, is a 60-second Spanish-language video featuring footage of Mysterio performing his trademark high-flying maneuvers and then discussing the value of being safety-conscious on the job.
Mysterio explains that a safe work place is everyone's right and urges viewers to call OSHA's toll-free hotline (1-800-321-OSHA) if they are injured on the job, or if they would like to receive general safety and health information.
Rey Mysterio is a six-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion who first became noticed while wrestling in Mexico. He has competed throughout the world and is recognized by wrestling fans for his maneuvers and traditional Mexican wrestling mask.
The Rey Mysterio PSA is currently featured on OSHA's Hispanic Employers and Workers Compliance Assistance Web page (http://www.osha.gov/dcsp/compliance_assistance/index_hispanic.html). People and groups interested in workplace safety are encouraged to download and distribute this PSA.
