Identifying non-english speakers

The construction industry needs to provide a working environment, which is safe and suitable for all.

Having consideration for members of the workforce, visitors and public, whom may originate from outside the UK, is beneficial to create an equal and diverse site, which can communicate effectively.

Below is an example of how non english speakers can be easily recognised on site to ensure all safety updates and messages are understood:

  • A standard white hard hat has been modified with a label on the front and side that clearly identifies the wearer as someone who is a non english speaker;
  • This is a very simple but effective way of adding to the safety of operatives on site.
