Speak Safe – OHS awareness for CALD workers


Speak Safe is a resource for trainers working with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) migrants and refugees. The resource has a strong practical focus. The learning materials are mostly centred around videos of OHS scenarios included on a DVD. Using the situations, students are supported to develop language, literacy and communication skills required to understand, identify and raise queries about workplace safety issues. The resource is also linked to elements of OHS units of competency from a number of industry training packages.

Non CALD teachers will also find the videos in this resource useful. The scenarios presented are realistic and show the complexity of safety issues that may arise in the workplace. Non CALD teachers may find it useful to purchase just the DVD.
