Updated Construction eTool for Spanish-speaking Workers

A popular and important Web-based training tool has been restructured to aid
Spanish-speaking construction workers. The Occupational Safety & Health
Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor recently posted a new version of
its construction eTool (eTool de Construccion - La Prevencion De Fatalidades)
that will help employers and workers identify and avoid hazards that commonly
cause the most serious injuries in construction including electrical, falls,
struck-by and trenching.

The updated version uses safety and health terms from OSHA's English-to-Spanish
and Spanish-to-English construction dictionaries, and includes a glossary of
construction safety and health terms, and topics to aid in developing and
maintaining effective workplace safety and health programs.
