With an increasing number of Spanish-speaking employees working on pork operations today, it’s critical that you provide safety training in a language that workers understand. What’s more, Occupational Safety and Health Administration officials recently announced that they will increase enforcement in industries where non-English speaking workers face high safety and health risks.

In response to the growing need Gempler’s now offers 84 different “Tailgate Training Tip Sheets” in both English and Spanish versions. These ready-to-use, 10- to 15-minute training scripts are written in simple language and are designed to help reduce on-the-job injuries, production down time and workers’ compensation claims.

Among the topics covered:

  • Work Safely Around Pesticides
  • Protective Clothing for Pesticide Use
  • Be Safe Around Agricultural Machinery
  • Sexual Harassment is a Serious Matter
  • Protect Yourself from Heat Stress
  • Work Safely Around Large Animals
  • Reduce Your Risk of a Tractor Overturn
  • Protection from Severe Weather
  • Safe Lifting at Work and Home
  • Work Safely Around Electricity 

The Tip Sheets are laminated and include easy-to-understand illustrations. They are sold in sets of 12 or in a complete kit of 84 with a sturdy three-ring binder.
