Migrant workers are often employed in some of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. Lack of training, poor safety precautions, regulatory exclusions, lack of health insurance, language barriers, piece-rate pay, undocumented worker status, and geographical and cultural isolation can put these workers at increased risk for occupationally related injuries and illnesses and chronic sequelae.
This webinar will discuss health risks facing migrants as a result of their working conditions and highlight best practices and resources to incorporate environmental and work-related health into the primary care setting. It will aslo showcase successful initiatives employed in Community and Migrant Health Centers. Participants will become familiar with the importance of and feasible approaches to integrate environmental and occupational health into primary care from both a clinical and social justice perspective.
