Protect Yourself at Work

On this page are links to brochures and posters in Spanish. These materials can help workers think about safety and health risks they might find at their workplace. They also provide suggestions for how workers can work together with coworkers, employers, and organizations in their communities to make their workplace safer and healthier.

Brochures

The Protéjase series of brochures (in Spanish) can raise workers’ awareness of their rights and responsibilities for safety and health in the workplace. They also suggest strategies workers can use to promote changes in the workplace if they identify a hazard. These strategies include things individual workers can do on their own as well as ways to involve employers, coworkers, and communities to improve workplace safety and health.
