Upcoming Trainings

Upcoming trainingssee below for information on a few of our specific programs with scheduled trainings.

We are able to plan workshops in response to requests from unions, worker centers or community organizations. Please write to lohp@berkeley.edu or call 510-642-5507 if you are interested in training – we may be able to plan a workshop tailored to the needs of your workers, including:

  • Hazard awareness: learn about jobs hazards, how they affect workers’ health, and solutions to protect workers. We can focus on specific hazards that are most relevant, such as chemicals, heat, or ergonomic hazards.
  • Health and safety in organizing: for organizers and worker leaders to learn how to use health and safety campaigns to educate and involve workers. This includes practical tools and strategies to organize for change.
  • Workers’ rights: review the key rights all workers have on the job – health and safety, wages and breaks, workers’ compensation, protection against sexual harassment, and the right to take action without being punished.
  • Training of trainers: prepare your staff or worker leaders to conduct workshops, outreach to workers, and serve as a resource on the topics above.
