Hispanic construction workers are at higher risk of fatal injury than their non-Hispanic co-workers. Several ongoing research initiatives focus on improving our understanding of this disparity. These include the development and evaluation of injury prevention and training interventions that address the needs of this high risk group. CPWR has the largest on-line collection of Spanish language construction safety materials on eLCOSH – (click on español) – more than 130 documents and a site map in Spanish.
