OSHA awards $11M in safety, health grants

OSHA announced that it will distribute $10.7 million to 72 nonprofit organizations through the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program. Recipients include community/faith-based groups, employer associations, labor unions, associations, and colleges and universities.

The program, named for a former OSHA staff member, funds employer and employee training on the recognition, avoidance, and prevention of workplace hazards. The grants also fund projects that inform workers of their rights and inform employers of their duties under the law. Since 1978, nearly 2 million workers have been trained through the Harwood grants program.

Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis stated, “The grants awarded by the federal government today will provide workers and employers in some of the most dangerous industries with important tools to identify and eliminate such hazards.”
