The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has awarded approximately $12.7 million in grants to 100 non-profit organizations across the nation to support education and training to help workers and employers recognize serious workplace hazards, employ injury prevention, and understand workers' rights and employers' responsibilities under federal law.
Funded through the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program, the grants are awarded in three categories:
- Targeted Topic Training
- Training and Educational Materials Development
- Capacity Building grants.
OSHA grants to non-profit organizations, including community and faith-based groups, employer associations, labor unions, joint labor-management associations, Native American tribes, and local and state-sponsored colleges and universities. Specifically, these grants will positively impact small-business employers and underserved vulnerable workers in high-hazard industries.
