OSHA Construction

In April 2010, U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis issued a directive that safety training be delivered in a language that workers can understand and in a way they can understand it. Language Directions is proud to offer this required training, taught completely in Spanish or English. Customized instruction held on-site in your choice of location.
