With workplace accidents always a concern for roofing contractors, the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has released Spanish versions of three of its safety compliance programs: Serving Up Safety: A Recipe for Avoiding Falls on the Job, NRCA’s Material Handling Series: Overhead and Understood and NRCA’s Hazard Communications Program: Know the Signs.
Serving Up Safety: A Recipe for Avoiding Falls on the Job is a comprehensive tool for training new and seasoned roofing workers about all aspects of fall protection for roofing work.
The Spanish version provides everything contractors need to provide to their Spanish-speaking roofing workers so contractors comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) fall-protection requirements for roofing work. The program includes an interactive DVD program explaining all fall-protection rules pertaining to each of the 50 states with about one hour of content per state and printable PDFs of an instructors guide to assist trainers in conducting and delivering informational classroom sessions; a student workbook; and a student handout that summarizes key fall-protection rules and components.
