Outreach Program

text

The Great Lakes Center for Occupational Health and Safety outreach program develops resources, provides technical assistance, coordinates educational programs, and collaborates on research to protect and advance worker health and safety.

The outreach program works together with:

  • Workers’ rights advocacy groups
  • Community-based organizations
  • Labor unions
  • Workers centers
  • Employers
  • Workforce development programs

While the Great Lakes Center for Occupational Health and Safety takes a comprehensive approach to improving, promoting, and maintaining the health of workers and communities, we devote special attention to the needs of disadvantaged workers and communities, the specific occupational and environmental safety and health needs of our region, and to the development of innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to addressing these needs. If you are interested in partnering please contact, Rolando Favela, at rfavela@uic.edu .
