LOHP’s lively, interactive training programs, offered in several languages, encourage participants to take action to improve safety conditions in the workplace. With funding from federal and state government agencies, private foundations, or on a fee-for-service basis, LOHP provides training programs, develops written materials, and offers technical assistance to groups of workers, labor unions, community organizations, employers, health care professionals and others from a variety of occupations and industries, all with the aim of promoting safe and healthful workplaces and reducing work-related injuries and illnesses. LOHP’s training programs are skills based, action-oriented and focus on empowering workers -- out of a recognition that the employees doing the work are in the best position to recognize hazards and identify solutions. LOHP is particularly interested in working with labor-management groups and community organizations that serve vulnerable, underserved workers.
