OSHA Awards more than $10.1 Million in Susan Harwood Grants

OSHA recently awarded more than $10.1 million in Susan Harwood Training Grants to 55 nonprofit organizations for safety and health training and educational programs.

"Outreach and education are at the heart of our compliance assistance efforts for employers and employees," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke Jr. "The Harwood grants will help OSHA expand its educational resources to protect working men and women."

The Susan Harwood Grants--named in honor of the late Susan Harwood, a former director of the Office of Risk Assessment in OSHA's health standards directorate, who died in 1996--support workplace safety programs and the development of training materials to educate employees in high-hazard industries, those with limited English proficiency, those who are hard-to-reach, and those in industries with high fatality rates.

The grants support training programs to educate employees on targeted topics, such as construction hazards, general industry hazards, and other safety and health topic areas. A complete list of the 2007 Susan Harwood Grant recipients is posted at www.osha.gov/dcsp/ote/sharwood.html.
