The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently announced $10.5 million in workplace safety training and education grants.
The Susan Harwood Training Grant program supports in-person, hands-on training 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.
