3 Blue Collar Industries That Need Onsite English Training

When it comes to blue collar industries, a significant portion of workers are ESL (English as a Second Language) speakers. Countless companies rely on manual intensive labor as part of the job description, but for some reason don't offer industry specific language training as part of their onboarding process. Blue collar work typically involves lifting heavy materials, operating dangerous machinery, and working on a team to complete a task. Out of the top 10 most frequently cited workplace safety standards of 2021, hazard communication falls at #5; according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) attributes. In other words, failure to adequately communicate job-safety risks is a very common theme with blue collar work. What is more, according to the Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index of 2018, United States based businesses spend nearly a billion dollars per week on OSHA violations and workers' compensation. One would logically think then, that industries employing record high numbers of ESL speakers would prioritize making corporate language training a mandatory part of their onboarding process.
