What

In anticipation of Hispanic Heritage Month, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has released a series of illustrated communication products for organizations that serve Spanish-speaking immigrant workers. The family of products, Protéjase en el trabajo (Protect yourself at work), encourages workers to know and exercise their rights to workplace safety.

NIOSH partnered with the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs to create support for the Protéjase project and help workers act on the occupational safety and health information they receive through the materials. The brochures, short videos, and posters encourage immigrant workers to seek help if they have questions about their workplace safety or health.
