OSHA Accepting Susan Harwood Training Grant Applications

A total of $7 million is available in grants for non-profit organizations.

OSHA announced it is soliciting applications under the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program, with $7 million available for non-profit organizations, including community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, employer associations, labor unions, management associations, colleges, and universities.

According to OSHA, the program supports the creation of in-person, hands-on training and educational programs and the development of materials for workers and employers in small businesses; industries with high injury, illness, and fatality rates; and workers who are underserved, have limited English proficiency, or are temporary workers. The program awards two types of grants: Targeted Topic Training and Capacity Building. Each grant fund will have approximately $3.5 million in funding.

Targeted Topic Training grants support the development of training materials and programs, while Capacity Building supports focusing on the development and expansion of the capacity of an organization to provide safety and health training.

"These grants play an important role in ensuring worker safety and health. By providing training to employees on their rights and employers on their responsibilities, the Susan Harwood grants are making sure that workplace safety is the number one priority on any job site," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez.
