Employee English Class and Safety In Factories

Employee English class is as much about worker safety as it is about improving communication. Typically, blue collar manufacturing businesses tend to hire more ESL workers (who speak English as a Second Language). As a business owner, you have a responsibility to provide every worker with a safe working environment. Usually this means going over the safety trainings again, having proper signage throughout the workspace etc. Business owners and decision makers should be prepared to take additional steps to ensure worker safety. If an ESL employee is struggling with pronunciation, how can they communicate to the rest of their team? If they can't understand terminology needed for their job, how can you trust they can follow instruction? Especially in big factories, communication is as much about safety as any other protocol you are required to follow.

Corporate ESL Courses Keep Hospitals Safe

Corporate ESL courses do a lot more than teach English. At least ours do- we can't speak for the other ones. You know, the pre-recorded. ones. And they all have a million videos that go too fast and too slow all at the same time. That's something that sets us apart from the competition. All of our remote courses are taught 100% LIVE ✅ through video-chat webinars. Meaning your employees receive all the convenience of remote learning, AND all the benefits of a traditional classroom experience. Why do we do this? Because we believe the best learning happens in real time✅; not through a book or on your own. As hospital owners and decision makers, ensuring the safety of your patients and workers is a top priority... At least we hope so. When it's time to think about workplace safety, we tend to think in terms of practicality. Surgeons wash their hands before procedures. Doctors wear masks and scrub in. We ensure all surfaces and tools are sterilized and prepared. There are procedures and protocols to follow for all of this... because ensuring safety is a priority. So then how are corporate ESL courses (that teach English as a Second Language) keeping hospitals safe as well?

Language Classes For Employees & Safety In Landscaping

Language classes for employees don't have to start and end with traditional ESL (English as a Second Language). Giving you the freedom to customize our curriculum✅, we allow decision makers to create an online ESL course that actually works for you. There are so many good things that come from providing English courses for employees. But one of the biggest is peace of mind. As one of the most hazardous industries in the service sector, business owners and decision makers must consider the risks that come with the work. Contact with heavy machinery, exposure to the elements, electrical currents, slips or falls and working closely with hazardous materials come with the territory. In fact, landscaping is one of the most hazardous industries in the service sector. According to the 2020 census bureau report, an average of 197 landscapers die from job-related injuries each year. Per 100,000 workers, there are approximately 25 deaths compared to the 3.8 for all industries. So, when 1 in 3 landscaping employees in the United States are foreign born, those decision makers have a lot more to consider by way of employee safety.

Employee English Courses Should Be Your Company Resolution

Employee English courses should never be one size fits all. Every employee learns at a different pace, and requires a different approach when learning new information. Some retain information better when it is demonstrated and others need to write something out or explain it themselves to achieve understanding. There is neither a "right way" nor a "wrong way" there are just differences, and they are all valid. So when decision makers and leaders sit down to formulate new goals for their employees, it is important to have a good understanding of how they each learn. Especially when creating goals and development plans, leaders need to take their employees capabilities into consideration. Making sure that goals are attainable and that they have clear methods of tracking progress is essential. So as we move through the new year, what kinds of language training goals can you set for employees?
