Why pay four times for one class?

If an interpreter is needed for a 10 hour or 30 construction or general industry class, OSHA requires that the interpreter be knowledgeable in safety and the class must be twice as long to cover all the information.

All employees out of work twice the time plus added cost of instructor and interpreter.

Substantial money can be saved by eliminating the need for an interpreter. Our cultural understanding and passion are effective in helping workers take to heart this life-saving message.
