The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is accepting 2015 applications to fund safety and health training under the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program.
A total of $3.5 million is available for nonprofit organizations, including community and faith-based organizations, employer associations, labor unions, joint labor/management associations, tribal organizations, and colleges and universities.
The Susan Harwood Training Grants support the creation of training and educational programs and the development of materials for workers and employers in small businesses and in industries with high injury, illness and fatality rates. The grants also aim to benefit workers who are underserved, have limited English proficiency or are temporary workers.
Both targeted-topic training and capacity-building grants will be awarded.
The targeted-topic training grants support training programs and educational materials that focus on identifying and preventing workplace hazards. Applicants must address the occupational safety and health hazards designated by OSHA in the grant announcement. Grants may be eligible for one additional follow-on grant, based on satisfactory performance.
Two types of capacity-building grants are available: capacity-building pilot and capacity-building developmental grants. Capacity-building pilot grants are intended to assist organizations in assessing their needs and formulating a capacity-building plan before launching a full-scale safety and health education program. Capacity-building developmental grants focus on improving and expanding an organization’s capacity to provide safety and health training, education, and related assistance to target audiences. Capacity-building developmental grant recipients may be eligible for up to three additional 12-month follow-on grants, based on satisfactory performance.
Applicants must register here. Applications for both targeted-topic training grants (SHTG-FY-15-01) and capacity-building grants (SHTG-FY-15-02) must be submitted electronically, no later than 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 2, 2015. No extensions will be granted. More information on the training grant program and a series of short webinars to assist prospective applicants in understanding the application process can be found here.
