A Sign of the Times - Job Safety Training in Spanish


I am fairly certain they are not the first, but the South Carolina Department of Labor is starting job-safety training in Spanish. The State.com home page has the story and one of the unfortunate reasons for the training. In 2003 1/3 of the workers killed on the job were Hispanic.


Comments:
There are many states where the Latino population is booming. Traditionally, people think that these folks live in major cities, but that is not always the case. I have several clients in the South East US who have very large Hispanic workforces. I think the trend is that we will see more and more growth of the Latino polulation in these states.
