Title Health and safety organizing: OCAW's worker-to-worker health and safety training program
Bibliographic information 2001, Vol.11, No.4, p.349-374. 32 ref.
Abstract The Oil, Chemical, and Atomic Workers International Union (OCAW) developed a hazardous waste worker and hazardous materials emergency responder health and safety training programme that was specific to its members in the represented industries. The objective of the programme is to develop worker-trainers to conduct the training using the Small-Group Activity Method, to participate in curriculum development, and ultimately to use health and safety training as a vehicle for identifying, developing, and mobilizing health and safety activists among the membership.
