Why Group English Classes Are Needed for Utah’s Manufacturing Boom

In the last 5 years, residents of Utah and other South Western states have experienced a large manufacturing boom. The emergence of these large manufacturing companies in industries like tech, construction, medical equipment and more, have made manufacturing one of the most diverse workforces in the United States. Working in these plants requires a lot of stamina and often requires operating heavy machinery that puts people in regular, dangerous situations to complete their day's work. And by employing millions of people who speak English as a Second Language (ESL) and those who are Limited English Proficient (LEP) many manufacturing workers may require a 360 approach to onboarding. For the CEOs of these companies, it is in their best interest to provide workers with training that is comprehensive enough to avoid these kinds of accidents that can bankrupt companies and destroy their workers lives forever.

 

English for manufacturing workers is an essential, yet overlooked component of workplace safety training. And while manufacturers all over the country can benefit from English training for employees, Utah has seen a large emergence of new companies which means a lot of new employees. Here's 3 reasons why...

 

Group English classes are needed:

 

 

1. Enhancing OSHA training👷🏻

Group English Classes

In industries like construction, manufacturing and warehousing, workers constantly operate heavy machinery. Any time safety procedures are explained, the likelihood of an accident increases. Millions of dollars are spent every year in OSHA violations (The Occupational Safety and Health Administration). Our private group English courses enhances OSHA training and makes for a safer work environment✅ overall. Employee ESL reinforces vocabulary, dictation and improves reading comprehension.

 

2. Communication is the key 🗣

Knowing that all of your employees have the capability to communicate effectively, and in the way that is required is a goal every employer strives for. Not only does effective communication make working together easier- it makes work safer as well. In high risk industries like manufacturing, effective communication can make a difference in physical safety. And while every job is different, and every employer has different needs for their different employees- all of our English language training programs are 100% customizable ✅. We allow clients to tailor any aspect of our programs to meet all of your needs, because we understand that communicating effectively is a skill, that understandably so, gets lost in translation sometimes for ESL speakers.

 

3. Teamwork makes the dream work 👫

Working together in close proximity can make or break a team. Balancing different personalities and learning styles can be challenging in any industry. With our private on-site English courses for manufacturers, company owners can host our English language training courses on-site for employees. When we come to your workplace to provide onsite language training✅ employees are given time to bond and build relationships in the setting they will work together, which sets a good foundation for working together.
