New Multilingual Workplace Safety Resource

That would be "How Safe Is Your Workplace?" in Greek.

You can find similar workplace safety and health fact sheets, checklists, and other resources in Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Croatian, Haitian/Creole, Hmong, Japanese, Khmer/Cambodian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Swahili, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese at the newly updated Online Multilingual Health and Safety Resource Guide at the California Commission on Health and Safety and Workers' Compensation website. The guide was developed by the Labor Occupational Health Program at UC Berkeley.

CHSWC was created by the California workers' compensation reform legislation of 1993 in order to oversee the health and safety and workers' compensation systems in California and recommend administrative or legislative modifications to improve their operation. The Guide is part of the Worker Occupational Safety and Health Training and Education Program (WOSHTEP) developed by CHSWC in partnership with the Labor Occupational Health Program (LOHP) at the University of California, Berkeley and the Labor Occupational Safety and Health (LOSH) Program at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Check it out and spread the word. There is no longer any excuse for employers not to make health and safety materials available to workers in almost any language.
