CISLI Survey – Health and Safety Report

CoverCISLI are proud to announce that they have consulted with Irish professional interpreters via an online survey to find out some of the issues and concerns about health and safety for sign language interpreters.

The survey shows that many interpreters are working regularly under conditions which respondents feel are harmful to health and safety. It also shows that there is a range of interpreting configurations and arrangements considered by interpreters to be best practice in regards to health and safety, with encouraging signs that a greater awareness of health and safety is widely distributed about the profession, but it is however concerning that some interpreters continue to believe that one interpreter, rather than two, is the optimum solution for two- and three-hour assignments.
