OSHA launches bilingual program

Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration has launched a free training resource as part of PESO, a bilingual program that helps English-speaking employers train and talk about workplace safety and health with Spanish-speaking workers.

The resource, “Residential Construction Building Safety,” encompasses six training modules in a bilingual format that makes it simpler for employers to train their employees. The images of the training course are paired with English and Spanish text. Employers can deliver the training at the job site in about an hour.

The course covers six phases of the residential construction process. They are site preparation, framing, roofing, exterior finishing, interior finishing and specialty work.

Further information on PESO is available at Find out about help provided by Oregon OSHA’s consultation services, technical staff, and education and training services.
