Reaching Out in Philadelphia
Just recently, OSHA Philadelphia Area Office met with the Burmese Community to discuss outreach and enforcement.
This was a follow up from the recent DOL White House Summit help in Philadelphia.
Here is a summary:
More than 75 Burmese and Nepalese migrants and refugees attended a workplace rights event sponsored by the Pennsylvania Migrant Education Program in South Philadelphia on July 26. Representatives from the department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Wage and Hour Division joined staff members from the Philadelphia Area Project on Occupational Safety and Health, the Philadelphia Nationalities Service Center, and Friends of Farmworkers to inform workers about wage and workplace safety and health rights.
