OSHA announced this week that it has awarded $9.3 million in Susan Harwood federal safety and health training grants to 74 nonprofits nationwide. The grants will provide education and training programs to help employees and employers recognize workplace hazards, implement injury prevention measures, and understand their rights and responsibilities, according to OSHA.
OSHA also awarded over $1 million in grants to five organizations to train and protect workers involved in hurricane recovery activities.
The Susan Harwood Training Grants Program funds grants to nonprofit organizations, including community and faith-based groups, employer associations, labor unions, joint labor-management associations, colleges, and universities. Target trainees include small-business employers and underserved vulnerable workers in high-hazard industries. The OSHA grants help organizations fund and provide adequate training and education.
