Safety is seguridad: a workshop summary.
Communicating Occupational Safety and Health Information to Spanish Speaking Workers, San Diego, May 29-30, 2002. Washington, DC: National Academies Press, 2003 Jan; 1-150
The growing presence of Spanish-speaking workers and employers in the United States and the unprecedented 12-percent increase in the overall rate of workplace fatalities among Hispanic workers in 2000 highlights the need to better communicate occupational safety and health information in Spanish to both employees and employers. To address this need, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is preparing a strategy for developing and disseminating Spanish-language occupational safety and health educational and technical material. To gather information necessary to create this strategic plan, the National Research Council (NRC) was asked to host a workshop to: 1. identify the most pressing occupational safety and health issues faced by Spanish-speaking workers and employers in the United States; 2. examine how NIOSH can best meet the informational needs of the occupational safety and health community to address effectively the safety and health issues faced by Spanish-speaking workers and employers in the United States; and, 3. identify potential partnerships for NIOSH in reaching Spanish-speaking workers, their employers, and others.
