Abstract In Spain, the proportion of immigrant workers within the active population has considerably increased during the past ten years. These individuals often have precarious working conditions, which coupled to the language barrier, result in a high rate of accidents. This information note discusses the main preventive aspects to take into account against accidents among this worker population, together with the possible intervention measures (work organization, integration, training and information).
