The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) helps protect employers and employees from workplace hazards that may cause injury or illness. In order to protect people within the workplace, OSHA has a list of standards and requirements that each workplace must follow. With all these regulations and requirements put out by OSHA, it is important that all employees have the correct training to maintain their safety within their place of work.
Recently, OSHA has made $4.6 Million Safety Training Grants available from The Susan Harwood Training Program Grant. The grants will fund in person training, educational programs and development materials for companies to help improve their safety and health within the workplace.
The Susan Harwood Training Program Grant has already trained more than 2.1 million workers since its creation in 1978, with numbers continuing to rise. The Program Grant is divided into two, the Pilot Grant and the Capacity Building grant. The Pilot Grant assists organizations in building a health and safety plan before going forward with a full-scale health and safety education programs. While Capacity Building Development Grants focus on improving the capacity of the organization, to provide both health and safety education and training.
These grants strongly encourage those in a small business, Indian Tribes, people who have limited English proficiency and those who want to improve their health and safety within the workplace.
