Wind of the Spirit in Morristown will offer safety training for construction workers on the use of personal protection equipment, at 7 o’clock tonight, April 28, 2014.
Several organizations from the metropolitan area are staging safety and health training sessions this week at day laborer sites.
Immigrant day laborers are at high risk for death or injury on the job, according to New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE) of Queens, NY.
“Every Workers Memorial Day we always honor those who have died on the job, but this is the first time that we will be doing something other than mourning, we’ll be bringing trainings to workers that will prevent injuries and death,” Natalia Navas of NICE said in a statement.
The Morristown session is in the Wind of the Spirit office, at 120 Speedwell Ave. on the second floor.
