The Hispanic labor force increased 36 percent faster than other ethnic groups in the last 10 years and will make up more than 15 percent of the U.S. workforce and 25 percent of the U.S. population by 2050, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. While overall workplace fatalities have dropped 20 percent in the last decade, workplace fatalities among Hispanic workers, especially those working in the construction industry, have risen almost 35 percent in the same period.
To help safety managers address training of their Spanish-speaking employees, the editors of Safety.BLR.com have created this collection of information. It includes Spanish PowerPoints, Audio Presentations, Handouts, Quizzes, Activities, and Posters, as well as supporting English-language materials to help English speakers manage the safety of their Spanish-speaking workforce. We will continually add information to this resource center to better serve your needs.
