Abstract
The increase in the Hispanic immigrant population over the past decade has been accompanied by a disproportional rise in occupational mortality and morbidity for members of this group. This situation is aggravated by large numbers of immigrants settling in areas of the country which have very limited Spanish-speaking infrastructures to facilitate workplace safety initiatives for Hispanic immigrant workers. This paper describes the perceptions of Latino immigrants on the relationship between undocumented status and occupational health. The results provide important information on the daily challenges immigrants face and the adaptation strategies that can either hinder or facilitate safer conditions at work.
