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.

Online Corporate English Classes For The Agriculture Industry

Aside from the clear barriers that a Limited English Proficiency (LEP) poses, like a decline in productivity and poor communication, it can also pose a very real threat to worker safety; which is often overlooked when business leaders and owners weigh the risks against rewards for offering corporate English classes to associates.

Business owners and decision makers are correct to hire ESL  workers- they bring a variety of skills and techniques that are an asset to American companies. But they are gambling with lives and health and threatening livelihoods by failing to incorporate online English courses into their onboarding programs. Corporations have a responsibility to their workforce and their loved ones to keep the workplace safe. And while some companies might get lucky, and never have an accident at work with their ESL workers... it only takes 1 time; 1 conversation where instructions were misunderstood. It is a gamble that business owners make- one way or another, whether conscious or not- when they opt out of corporate English courses for associates. Nothing is ever guaranteed in life, but being proactive with worker safety is a clear step towards minimizing risk. Here's some ways that online English classes can help businesses in the agricultural industry...
