Creating an Employee Handbook and Safety Manual is crucial for any company — making these materials consumable by all audiences is equally important. After all, what good is a Safety Manual if half of the text isn’t being properly understood by Spanish-speaking workers?
The Spanish-speaking workforce represents about 15% of the United States workforce, and that number is expected to rise to 20% in the next five years. This considerable growth brings new challenges in communication, particularly in developing culturally and linguistically inclusive business documents for human resources, safety protocol, and OSHA.
Language barriers directly impact morale and productivity, and more importantly, safety. When safety precautions are not properly communicated, a company faces higher incidents of accidents, customer service problems, failed expectation management, and legal issues.
Since each of these effect the baseline profit of a business, isn’t it worth investing in a fully translated Employee Handbook and Safety Manual?
English To Spanish Safety Manual Translation & OSHA
It’s vital to note that OSHA regulations mandate all safety manuals offer a Spanish translation if a company employees Spanish-speaking individuals. While some companies rely on translating websites and applications, it’s possible to miss critical cultural and linguistic references that only a truly fluent speaker can communicate.
