Is your organization thinking about making changes regarding company protocols that will affect every employee, but is worried that the updated standards won’t reach your entire workforce? Look no further than Language Connections, a company that specializes in SOP translation services to ensure that all policy changes are never lost in translation.
The Importance Of SOP Translation
SOP or “standard operating procedure” creates and maintains standard protocols for specific actions done throughout a company by its employees. SOPs facilitate better performance, efficiency, and quality assurance though implementation of systemic homogenization. For companies that rely on linguistically diverse workforces, translating SOPs is essential. A workplace that requires the use of heavy machinery can become highly unsafe without standardized processes that all employees can understand. Luckily, SOP translation and localization services can help your organization create materials that are adapted to the linguistic and cultural backgrounds of your employees.
SOP Translation Regulations
Employee accessibility is not just a privilege. It is a legal right listed under a multitude of protective measures by the federal government to keep companies from exploiting their employee’s LEP (limited English proficiency),. The U.S. Department of Labor creates an annual Language Access Plan to routinely match the country’s language needs within the workforce by updating policies. According to the 2023 report, “individuals with LEP who also have disabilities must be provided with reasonable accommodations, effective communications, and accessible technologies pursuant to Section 501, 504, and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act” (Pg. 6).
Some of the accommodations required by DOL for American employers include creating SOP plans for your company’s language access plans to ensure inclusivity for your LEP employees. In addition, OSHA will begin implementing its 2024 Language Access Plan in partnership with the DOL to ensure all labor stakeholders understand their rights and responsibilities in order to stay in compliance with federal regulations through SOP translation.
