The graduates of LOSHI’s March 2009 residential construction training conference in Newark, NJ

LOSHI works with partners from the business, non-profit, and faith community to design and implement industry- and site-specific Spanish-language health and safety programs. Seeking to both engage Latino workers’ own lived experience and make health and safety awareness a collective enterprise, LOSHI’s curriculum is designed in accordance with the Small Group Activity Method pedagogy.

LOSHI has developed training manuals for a number of the industries and situations in which immigrant Latino workers most commonly find themselves.
