Electronic Newsletter Meant To Reduce Work Injuries In New York Among Hispanics

NEW YORK -- Hispanic workers and their employers in New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands have a new occupational safety and health resource—a Spanish-language electronic newsletter from region two of the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). "Cápsulas de Salud y Seguridad" presents a cross-section of information on workplace safety and health issues, particularly those affecting Hispanic workers. Each issue will feature topics designed to educate and guide readers in their effort to reduce hazards and improve safety and health in their workplaces.

"This electronic newsletter is the first of its kind for OSHA," said Patricia K. Clark, OSHA's regional administrator. "Our goal is to present important and useful safety and health information in a clear, readable and easily accessible format." "We want to inform our readers and encourage them to take positive steps to ensure safe and healthful workplaces," said Jose A. Carpena, newsletter editor and OSHA's area director in Puerto Rico.

"Knowledge is the one tool workers and employers need to understand, to identify and to eliminate occupational hazards before they hurt workers," said Diana Cortez, OSHA's regional Hispanic coordinator. Topics in the first issue include an overview of OSHA's role, responsibilities and services; health hazards posed by exposure to silica dust; a Spanish/English dictionary of OSHA terms; OSHA's Spanish-language construction e-tools; OSHA's alliance program; public-service announcements by Orlando Cepeda and Rey Mysterio; and a list of outreach and training programs and activities in New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
