SAFEME is now available in Spanish

With the success of SAFEME, a free app aimed at educating young and first-time employees about how to work safely, Washington Retail (WR) is launching a Spanish version of SAFEME in both Essentials and Automotive.

Studies show that workers age 16 to 20 sustain more on-the-job injuries per capita than older workers. Approximately one in five retail workers is in the app’s target age group.

According to July 2017 US Census data, people of Hispanic origin are the nation’s largest ethnic or racial minority. With that in mind, Rick Means, Washington Retail’s Director of Safety and Education, secured a grant to translate the 24 SAFEME workplace safety training lessons into Spanish. Before the launch, WR partnered with the Seattle Latino Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce to conduct a usability test with Spanish-speaking workers and supervisors.

Funding and support for the SAFEME app has been provided by the State of Washington, Department of Labor and Industries, Safety & Health Investment Projects.  It is available on the web and for Apple and Android smartphones.

The app is meant to supplement-- not replace-- the legal requirement for employers to provide safety education and training.
