Salem, OR — Oregon OSHA 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 simple 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.

“With this new training resource, Oregon OSHA continues to build on its highly successful PESO program,” said Roy Kroker, consultation and public education manager for the division. “It offers yet another important bridge between English-speaking employers and Spanish-speaking workers on behalf of on-the-job safety.”

The “Residential Construction Building Safety” course covers six phases of the residential construction process. They are: site preparation; framing; roofing; exterior finishing; interior finishing; and specialty work.
