The OSHA Hispanic Outreach Module of Compliance Assistance Quick Start will assist employers with a Spanish-speaking workforce to learn more about employer and employee workplace rights and responsibilities, identify Spanish-language outreach resources, detail how employers can work cooperatively with OSHA, and provide a list of persons whom they can contact for additional information. By following this step-by-step guide, employers will be able to identify OSHA Spanish-language resources on OSHA's website that will help them comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 as well as help them to prevent employee workplace injuries and illnesses.
For more information, please see the OSHA English-Spanish and Spanish-English Dictionaries (with phonetic pronunciation guides) that contain over 400 general OSHA and construction safety and health industry terms. Additionally, the OSHA Directory, which is a collection of national, regional, state plan and on-site consultation contact information incorporated within the Hispanic Outreach Module, may also be a valuable reference resource after completing the above steps.
OSHA Dictionaries (English-to-Spanish and Spanish-to-English)
OSHA’s Hispanic Task Force developed these English-to-Spanish and Spanish-to-English dictionaries. The dictionaries include over 2,000 general OSHA, general industry, and construction industry terms. They are intended to assist OSHA, Susan Harwood Training Grant applicants and recipients, and others in their Spanish-language translations. Phonetic pronunciation guides are included in the dictionaries for frequently used general industry and frequently used construction industry terms.
