What are the risks?

In CALD workplaces, linguistic differences can be a significant barrier to communicating health and safety information, discussing issues and ensuring safe work practices.

Workers from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds may have different attitudes and expectations in relation to health and safety at work because of their experiences of work in other cultures.

Tailoring communication to the specific language needs and abilities of employees, and ensuring all employees understand the hazards and risks in their workplace, are important steps towards protecting their health and safety.
