Grants to USA nonprofits, including labor unions, community organizations, IHEs, employer associations, and tribal and Native entities, to develop and deliver occupational health and safety training for workers and employers. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete.
The program offers an opportunity for nonprofit organizations to compete annually for funding so they may develop and conduct training and education programs for small business employers and workers on the recognition, avoidance, and prevention of occupational safety and health hazards in their workplaces, and to inform workers of their rights and employers of their responsibilities under the OSH Act.
When developing training, consider these four program emphasis areas:
- Training that focuses on identifying and preventing occupational safety and health hazards in high hazard industries;
- Training on new OSHA standards;
- Training on workplace hazards identified in the DOL Strategic Plan, OSHA special emphasis program, or other OSHA priorities (https://www.osha.gov/); and
- Training workers and employers in small businesses with 250 or fewer employees.
Proposals may include acquiring training materials, revising existing Susan Harwood training materials, or developing new training materials. Training must reach workers and employers from multiple small businesses.
