The United States’ workforce is becoming increasingly diverse, particularly in terms of race, culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, and physical abilities. Workplace demographic changes have been accompanied by significant disparities in occupational safety and health among some working populations. A commonality across all these vulnerable groups is the difficulty public health professionals experience when targeting them for occupational safety and health interventions. Some of the barriers to effectively reaching these vulnerable groups include: differences in language and culture, documentation status, part time and/or contingent worker status, and employment in small businesses.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together 13 leading academics/researchers specialized in research translation and/or vulnerable worker population to provide hand-on workshops with the focus on occupational safety and health. During the 2-day workshop, symposia and presentations submitted by researchers and practitioners will also be held.
