Around the United States and Canada, more and more construction craft Laborers are native Spanish speakers. They may be conversational in English, but, when it comes to reading materials, they need it in Spanish.

Thus, the LHSFNA is stepping up efforts to translate its most important health and safety materials into Spanish. Most recently, the last of its health alerts were translated so, now, all the cards are available in either English or Spanish. Each is the size of a business envelope and is printed on card stock. Health alerts are commonly used by employers to reinforce lessons shared in toolbox talks or to include in paycheck envelopes.

A full list of the Fund’s health alerts is available through its online publications catalogue. LIUNA local unions, training centers and participating employers can order the alerts through the online site.
