Workplace Safety and Health
The labor movement has always led the charge to protect working people from workplace injury, illness and death. Through organizing and collective bargaining, unions have gained strong protections and rights that give workers a real voice in safety and health at the workplace.
The Workplace Safety and Health program is dedicated to making workplaces and communities safer and more secure by improving occupational safety and health training services. The program tailors training courses to the needs of workers and employers, generating new and innovative training methods and identifying best practices for disseminating information to workers. The program’s focus on innovative training and education increases workers’ security awareness and creates an active “culture of safety” in the workplace.
