English only required on Az construction projects?

ArizonaConstruction Contract

Since English is designated at the official language of the state of Arizona, do emergency procedures/instructions need to all be communicated in English only?

It's pretty common to require that notices, posters, or signs be posted in both English and Spanish. And, looking to the specific requirement for the given poster will help to identify if it must be in English, Spanish, or both. It looks like this might be a good start: Requirements for Posters Employers Must Display. Admittedly, I'm no expert on safety signage on AZ construction projects. However, regardless of what's required, the most responsible course of action would probably to provide signage in both languages if you know that a significant number Spanish-speakers will be present on the job. And, it should be easy to find signage that includes both.

Yes, English is a very important language now, but I always have trouble translating. And recently it was necessary to translate swahili to english and it's good that the translator helped me to do it competently and professionally. And my documents had the correct translation and they were accepted without problems.

I adore Engish! Reading different types of English, such as books, newspapers, and webpages can help you encounter new words. Many of these are words that you won’t come across in everyday conversations.

You know, English is quite common now. I recently found a resource where I managed to find a tutor who helped me with English. It's nice to learn something new and learn English in a fun and productive way. I noticed many English phrases that always seemed difficult to me, but I managed to learn them perfectly thanks to my tutor.
