In addition to the training videos the site also has links to English and Spanish versions of the manual “Safety for Hispanic Landscape Workers”. This book is an invaluable resource. Much of the material is presented in easy-to-understand picture format. This makes learning easy, regardless of the students’ language skills or literacy level.
The site also contains links to resources that will help trainers communicate with a Hispanic workforce. “This site pulls together the efforts of many people working to improve Hispanic education in the landscape industry,” according to Dr. Alfredo Martinez- Espinoza, UGA plant pathologist. “At www.ugaurbanag.com/safety you can find plant disease and horticultural resources in both Spanish and English.”
