Every day, an average of 12 workers die on the job, a total of over 4,500 people every year. Locally, the New Hampshire Coalition for Occupational Safety and Health was able to identify 16 Granite Staters who were killed at work in 2016.
Hesperian's Workers Guide to Health and Safety can help workers everywhere achieve healthier working conditions. In the US, Hesperian teamed up with the Garment Workers' Center in Los Angeles, CA to train mostly immigrant workers about how to protect themselves from exposure to chemicals on the job.
