Safety Training in a Non-English Speaking Work Environment
Many OSHA standards explicitly require the employer to train employees in the safety and health aspects of their jobs. Most importantly, the training must be conducted in the language and methods that the workers can understand. This session will demonstrate how to implement a successful bi-lingual safety and health training program, best practices methods and general compliance requirements to enable companies to reach out effectively to the non-English speaking workforce both in general industry and construction.
