WORKPLACE HEALTH and SAFETY
Latinos have the highest fatality rate in the workplace than any other minority groups. In 2007, the AFL-CIO reported that Latinos accounted for 16 percent of all workplace fatalities. We at LCLAA want this to change.
LCLAA strongly supports legislation that will strengthen safety and health standards in the workplace in order to prevent fatalities and reduce the number of Latinos and immigrant workers injured, and exposed to heal hazards. LCLAA supports policies that will promote awareness and education about workplace safety for all workers.
