OSHA Forms Partnership to Protect Hispanic Workers in New Jersey

OSHA on Tuesday formed an alliance with Morristown (N.J.) Neighborhood House to reduce workplace accidents and fatalities among Hispanic workers in construction and general industry. The agency says it will work with MNH to develop information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, as well as provide expertise in developing ways of communicating the information bilingually.

"This alliance demonstrates OSHA's commitment to educate and protect Hispanic workers by communicating the importance of workplace safety and their rights as workers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act," said Philip Peist, OSHA's area director in Parsippany, N.J.

MNH was founded in 1898 as a settlement house that helped Italian immigrants in becoming acclimated to a new culture. Its core mission is helping new immigrants, helping families who are confronting economic challenges, and fostering cross cultural acceptance. According to the organization, on an average day more than 1,500 children, youth, and adults receive its services through programs designed to support individuals and families as they strive to become self sufficient.
