Review for Massachusetts Coalition for Occupational Safety & Health, Inc., Dorchester, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In the late nineties, my school was slated for renovation while all the kids and staff were to occupy it. We were all very concerned about the air quality of the occupied side while the construction was going on and the air quality of the "new building." MassCOSH came to our rescue with technical knowledge, organizing prowess and constant support. With MassCOSH's help, we were able to maintain a healthy and safe environment throughout the process and after.

I then got involved with MassCOSH as a volunteer and then a Board member to give back to this wonderful organization. I have seen MassCOSH help people in so many ways: advicating for health and safety legislation and regulations, organize workers to demand a health and safe workplace, support workers in unionizing drives; and build coalition of community organizations to advocate for the best work environments possible.

My favorite aspect of MassCOSH's work is their education and organizing of teens.

In solidarity, Phil
