Worker safety is always important, and for producers with Hispanic workers, it’s important to ensure the messages are translated effectively. Those materials are now available in Spanish from the National Pork Board.

The materials come from NPB’s Pork Production Safety System, which guides producers and employees on issues related to occupational safety and regulations.

The set contains detailed information for trainers, including an instructor CD and a DVD with video clips that can be used to customize any production safety presentation. There also are materials for producers, including a guide to Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s regulations, information on providing a safe workplace, and a template to develop a customized worker-safety plan. Finally there are materials for employees, including an employee handbook and CD.

Pork producers can order a set of safety materials at no cost by calling NPB at (800) 456-7675.
