DOL, Mexican Consulate establish plan to protect, educate workers in Michigan, Ohio

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Consulate General of Mexico in Detroit have signed a two-year alliance to promote workplace safety and health training and educational opportunities for Consulate and Mexican nationals working in Michigan and northern Ohio.

The alliance seeks to promote a national dialogue on workplace safety and health and provide workers a better understanding of U.S. domestic law on the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers and employees under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act).

“This alliance will foster safer working conditions for Mexican nationals employed in Michigan and Ohio, and ensure employers and workers have greater access to training and resources,” said OSHA Toledo Area Director Kim Nelson.

The OSHA Alliance Program fosters collaborative relationships with groups committed to worker safety and health. Alliance partners help OSHA reach targeted audiences, such as employers and workers in high-hazard industries, giving them better access to workplace safety and health tools and information.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to help ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.

The mission of the Department of Labor is to foster, promote and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights.
