ASSE & NIOSH Issue Joint Report on At-Risk Workers
ASSE and NIOSH announced a joint report today that explores overlapping vulnerabilities facing young Hispanic immigrants who work in the construction industry. The report examines why this population is at increased risk for injury and death on the job. NIOSH and ASSE plan to work with community groups, national safety organizations, U.S. safety agencies and various Latin American consulates to develop tools to help this employee group and its employers better manage occupational hazards. The report announcement dovetails with the Society's America's At-Risk Workers symposium currently underway at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
