The Language Of Safety: How To Keep Non-English Speakers Safe At Work
|Date / Time:
It's hard to communicate your organization's safety protocols in a way that your employees understand and will remember. It's even harder when English isn't the employee's first language.
Safety meetings, on-the-job training by supervisors, in-class training and testing, and written safety procedures are all problematic when employees have challenges with English. So what can you do to reduce incidents, improve safety records, and stay in compliance?
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- What is "Emergency English" and how to use it to address language barriers and challenges
- How to assess the current language competency of your workforce
- How to develop a comprehensive and practical training program based on the assessment findings
- Common challenges in providing safety information to employees not proficient in English and how to overcome them
- Solutions for multilanguage workplaces
- Using iconography to present and transform critical safety information in a compelling and memorable way
- Nonwritten safety management solutions for production, material handling, and customer service settings
- How to keep your safety program adaptable to an increasingly diverse workforce and able to overcome as-yet-unknown challenges
- How to assess and use additional resources like translation and classroom training
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn how to communicate key safety policies and practices and instill a strong culture of safety, regardless of languages spoken at your workplace. Register now for this informative event risk-free.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
