NGWA Safety DVDs Are Now Available in Spanish The National Ground Water Association's safety DVDs Drill Safe, Drill Smart and Pump Safe, Pump Smart are now available in the NGWA Bookstore in Spanish. The items are an ideal way to train Spanish-speaking crew members to make sure they always practice safe habits when at job sites. Drill Safe, Drill Smart was first produced in English by NGWA in 2010. The Pump Safe, Pump Smart DVD was pro- duced two years later. Both have been popular since their debuts as they teach safe habits in an informative, but fun fashion. The two DVDs have now been professionally trans- lated so their important message can reach a Spanish-speaking audience. The drilling DVD covers falls, materials handling, chemi- cals, machine guarding, electrocution, safe site selection, per- sonal protective equipment, mobilizing for the site, rig setup, and blocking and leveling. The pump DVD covers job preparation, site safety assess- ments, figuring your load, personal protective equipment, site mobilization and setup, blocking and leveling, proper handling of the pump column and wire, pulling the pump, inspection, transportation, moving equipment, tools, lighting, and maintenance. Both the Spanish safety DVDs and the book Groundwater & Wells–Spanish will be available at the bookstore at the 2015 NGWA Groundwater Expo and Annual Meeting, December 15-17 in Las Vegas, Nevada. To learn more about the safety DVDs, visit the NGWA Bookstore at www.NGWA.org.
