New Hampshire Offers Work Safety Information in 10 Languages

July 6, 2009

New Hampshire workers now can get information on workplace health and safety in 10 foreign languages.

Immigrant, labor and community groups worked on the project. They say it’s important because the state has seen a large increase in refugees and immigrants in recent years, many of whom are not proficient in English. The state Labor Department and the New Hampshire Coalition for Occupational Safety and Health say the information is available on the department’s Web site.

Information on topics such as worker compensation is available in Arabic, Bosnian Chinese and French, as well as Portuguese, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Swahili and Vietnamese.
