Puerto Rico Project January 22 – 29, 2018
The International Chemical Workers Union Council (ICWUC) Hurricane Maria Disaster Train-The-Trainer at the University of Puerto Rico San Juan.
“This collaborative effort, made possible by the International Chemical Workers Union Council, the University of Puerto Rico School of Public Health, National Council for Occupational Safety and Health, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the United Steelworkers, the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), was a tremendous undertaking and resulted in a motivated group of 17 graduate students and union members who will help with the recovery from Hurricane Maria, and also help Puerto Ricans prepare for the next hurricanes.” (Luis Vazquez)

Goal: To prepare local trainers to assist in delivering the ICWUC Disaster Awareness Programs using the National Institute of Environmental Health and Science (NIEHS) booklets.
