The Tompkins County Workers’ Center is currently providing training on Know Your Basic Rights under OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) to immigrants and vulnerable workers. We are also providing a Train the Trainer program for staff from local organizations that are serving immigrant and vulnerable workers. The basic curriculum covers the importance of OSHA rights to workers, the rights under OSHA, employer responsibilities under OSHA, OSHA Standards, how OSHA inspections are conducted, and Safety and Health Resources.
This program is partly funded by the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the Midstate Education and Service Foundation and the Tompkins County Workers’ Center
