Alliance Plans Outreach to Spanish-Speaking Workers

OSHA and the Café Con Leche Health and Safety Outreach Committee have formed an alliance to facilitate safety and health outreach to Spanish speaking employees in the Wichita area. The alliance will focus on outreach and training for non-English speaking employees and youth with the goal of reducing construction and general industry workplace hazards.

"This agreement provides an opportunity for OSHA and the committee to have a positive impact on safety and health for Hispanic employees and their families," said Charles E. Adkins, OSHA's regional administrator in Kansas City, Mo. "We worked with the committee last year to hold a very successful Hispanic Safety and Health Fair. As we formalize our relationship through this alliance, OSHA looks forward to even greater success in reducing injuries, illnesses and fatalities among Hispanic employees."

For the past eight years, the Café Con Leche committee has provided health information on cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment to the Hispanic community in Wichita. OSHA currently has more than 480 alliances throughout the nation with organizations committed to fostering safety and health in the workplace. For more information, visit www.osha.gov.
