What's in the Training Course?

Our Communicating with Spanish Workers training course is regulation compliant, and our online version fulfills classroom training requirements. Each class contains sections on general Hispanic terminology, its culture, workplace, its language, and an application section.

During this training, we will be taking a look at general terms, statistics, and OSHA regulations before we go over the Hispanic culture and language. We will teach you how you can create a safe and effective workplace. A large component of this training is the application of Spanish. We will give you example phrases for a variety of work sites. There will be a portion where you listen to the phrases in Spanish. Also, at the end of the course there will be a reference guide you will download that will have all vocabulary and example phrases for each work site.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by OSHA.

Train the Trainer Certification

Why Do I Need Safety Training?

While OSHA doesn’t have a specific standards for communicating with Spanish workers, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that "is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees."

This means employers have a legal and ethical obligation to promote a work environment that is free from workplace problems that stem from language and cultural barriers. You and your coworkers have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety, equality, and well-being of all.
