Forest Safety in English and Spanish

Posted by on April 13th, 2018 Posted in: Minority Health Concerns, Multilingual


The largely immigrant, Latino workforce in the forestry industry is essential to US forest management, yet vulnerable because of documentation status, lack of English proficiency, low literacy, occupational immobility, working in remote locations under contracted employment, and deficiencies in skills training. These materials were developed under an academic-community partnership between the University of Washington’s Pacific Northwest Agriculture Safety & Health Center, University of California Berkeley’s Labor Occupational Health Program, and the Northwest Forest Worker Center and include forest worker safety talks, videos, and a Spanish glossary of forestry terms.
