Wednesday, August 21st at 2:00pm Eastern: A Look at CPWR’s Spanish Language Materials & Resources
Presented by: Kathy Tolentino-Gonzalez, Program Assistant, Research to Practice (r2p)

The number of both Hispanic workers and contractors in construction continues to increase year after year. And while the gap has narrowed significantly over time, Hispanic workers are at a greater risk of fatal injury than their white, non-Hispanic counterparts.*  Because of these industry trends, CPWR has been working hard over the last several years to translate our training materials, contractor tools, and worker handouts into Spanish.  Learn more about these free resources and how they can help keep your workers safe in this 30 minute webinar, including Q&A.

Note: The live webinar will take place in English, however we will also make it available on-demand in Spanish following the event.
