Representatives from OSHA and the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division were among 25 exhibitors at a mobile Mexican Consulate Health Fair in Gainesville, Ga., from August 19 – 22. The four-day event was attended by more than 2,000 visitors, many of them workers in the poultry and construction industries. OSHA personnel provided information in English and Spanish on workplace safety, workers’ rights and how to file a complaint.
OSHA has an alliance with the Consulate General of Mexico in Atlanta, which provided consular identification cards and passports at the event. The health fair was a joint effort between OSHA’s Atlanta Area Offices, Emory University Rollins School of Public Health/Ventanilla de Salud Atlanta and Cielos Abiertos Christian Church.
