Safety Handbooks Available in English and Spanish
June is National Safety Month. The failure to properly train workers is one of the top 15 most frequently cited Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards in residential construction and could cost a company up to $7,000 for a single serious violation.
OSHA requires employers to train their employees to recognize and avoid safety hazards on the job and to understand the applicable safety regulations. To help meet this need, BuilderBooks.com offers numerous safety publications in both English and Spanish.
The “NAHB-OSHA Jobsite Safety Handbook: English-Spanish Edition” is a pocket-size manual that covers the key safety issues on which residential builders need to focus to reduce injuries and fatalities. Topics include:
- Employee and employer duties
- Orientation and training
- Personal protective equipment
- Stairs and ladders
