One of the logical reasons what I feel is that the all the safety related equipments and related documents are the global standards. Since the English is widely accepted both in printed form and communication purpose, it is necessary for workers to equip themselves with English language. Global standards on Safety are printed and circulated with the wide acceptance.

So here are the five reasons from Safety point of view:
One -Safety first : They should read and understand the safety rules.
Two most of the offices use English for verbal and written communication. so they should know how to differentiate between should and should not.
Three :It is a global language and since a majority of our jobs are dependent on outsourcing we better know what is good.
Four: Why not ? knowing another language is not going to hurt anyone- safety !!!
Five : The question is stupid and if you can understand the writing on the wall it means that your English is Good.
first learn to spell it is EXPLAIN & not EXLAIN atleast read your Post once before you submit @sandeep iife :)

1) Most of the safety instructions are in English
2) Their efficiency would increase as they would be able to understand official communication faster and more accurately
3) Their loyalty to company would increase if the company helps them in their career growth through English speaking program
4) The level of professionalism would go up
These reasons by themselves are enough for smart managers to decide that they must provide an English communication training program for their staff.
