DOL Announces $10.5M in Funding for Training in Worker Safety

The money is available as part of the Susan Harwood Training Grants program.

OSHA announced it has made $10.5 million available in Susan Harwood Training Grants in order to fund training and education for workers to help them identify and prevent workplace safety and health hazards.

The funds are available for nonprofit organizations, including community and faith-based organizations, employer associations, labor unions, joint labor/management associations, Indian tribes, and colleges and universities. Recipients will create in-person, hands-on training and educational programs for workers and employers in small businesses; industries with high injury, illness, and fatality rates; and vulnerable workers who are underserved, have limited English proficiency, or are temporary workers.

Targeted Topic Training grants are available to support the development of training programs that focus on preventing work place hazards, as well.

Harwood applications must be submitted online no later than 11:59 p.m. EDT on Aug. 28, 2017.
