OSHA offers Hispanic outreach Web tool

February 8, 2005

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has unveiled a new Hispanic Outreach Module for its Compliance Assistance Quick Start Web tool, the agency's Web-based tool that provides a step-by-step guide to identify OSHA requirements and guidance materials for specific workplaces.

The module will assist employers with a Spanish-speaking work force to learn more about workplace rights and responsibilities, identify Spanish-language outreach and training resources, and how to work cooperatively with OSHA. It also provides a list of OSHA's Hispanic/English-as-a-second-language coordinators.
