Mapping with New Eyes: Tools to Integrate Health and Safety into Organizing

The body and workplace maps that health and safety activists use can be useful for organizers too. In this workshop we’ll use colors, string, plastic layers, and more to make layered maps that go beyond showing hazards. They include often-invisible social information: lines of communication (management, the union/organizing drive, the grapevine), where people like to be and the “hot zones” they avoid, and how people move around on the job. When this information is visible, we see a workplace with “new eyes” and can discover routes to change and organizing possibilities.
