OSHA forms safety alliance with Hispanics in Real Estate & Construction

Construction organizations form alliance with the goal of helping NY small businesses provide safe work environments for employees.

Under the alliance, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Hispanics in Real Estate (HREC) will develop and deliver training and education programs focusing on such workplace hazards as falls, electrocution, being struck by or caught in or between machinery, amputations, hazardous materials and chemicals. These programs will include presentations of OSHA’s 10-hour construction and general industry courses in English and Spanish. HREC members who speak both English and Spanish will be encouraged to complete OSHA’s train-the-trainer courses so they can teach these courses in both languages.
