OSHA Solicits Proposals for $10.1 Million Susan Harwood Training Grants

OSHA announced in the today's Federal Register that it is soliciting Susan Harwood Training Grant applications. OSHA awards funds to nonprofit organizations to provide training and education programs for employers and employees on safety and health topics selected by OSHA. Nonprofit organizations, including community- and faith-based organizations that are not an agency of a state or local government, are eligible to apply. The application deadline is July 20, 2007.

“The Susan Harwood Training Grant Program provides funds for programs to train employees and employers to recognize and abate safety and health hazards in their workplaces,” said Edwin G. Foulke, Jr, assistant secretary of labor for OSHA. “The program emphasizes training opportunities that reach small businesses, at-risk employer and employee populations, and employees working in high-hazard industries.”

Fourteen training topics were selected for this grant announcement, including excavation and trench hazards, combustible dust, and driver safety. Training grants will be awarded for a 12-month period that begins Sept. 30, 2007. There is approximately $10.1 million available for the Targeted Topic training grants. The average federal award is expected to be $175,000.

Applications for grants must be transmitted electronically at www.grants.gov. Applicants needing assistance may contact the OSHA Directorate of Training and Education at least one week prior to the closing date at (847) 297-4810 to speak to a representative. Further information on the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program is available on the OSHA’s Web site at www.osha.gov/dcsp/ote/sharwood.html.
