Worker Safety Training Grants Available
The U.S. Department of Labor has announced more than $12 million in grants to support training and education for employee safety.
Nonprofit organizations, such as community, grassroots, or employer organizations, and public or state colleges and universities can qualify for the grants under the Susan Harwood Training Program.
The grants fund training and education about how to recognize, avoid, and control hazards in three categories.
- Targeted Topic Training: Supporting educational programs that identify and prevent workplace hazards. Applicants must conduct training on OSHA-designated workplace safety and health hazards.
- Training and Educational Materials Development: Supporting the development of quality classroom-ready training and educational materials that identify and prevent workplace hazards.
- Capacity Building: Supporting organizations in developing new training programs to assess needs and plan for full-scale safety and health education programs, expanding their capacity to provide workplace safety and health training, education and related assistance to workers and employers.
Grant applications should be submitted by July 7, 2023.
