Abstract The objective of this cross-sectional study was to clarify the status of occupational safety and health services for immigrant workers, the barriers to employing immigrant workers and the needs of the managers in workplaces to keep immigrant workers healthy and safe. A self-administered questionnaire was sent to 126 workplaces in a region of Japan in 2006. Findings show that the most important issue which the managers believed kept immigrant workers safe and healthy was health checkups (69.6%).
