These materials, in addition to videos, are also available in Spanish.


This Protect Yourself at Work series of brochures 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 or unsafe condition. 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.
