Grants Target Fall Protection, Safety

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Comment | More

Seven organizations will address fall protection and three will target so-called Focus Four hazards as recipients of 2008 Susan Harwood Grants awarded by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Three dozen labor unions, community colleges and other nonprofit organizations will share in the $6.7 million grant total.

The awards will support workplace safety and health training programs that educate employees in industries with high hazard and fatality rates, as well as other at-risk groups.

Seven organizations will focus their aid on falls, which are increasing, despite an overall decline in worker injuries. They are:

  • Roofers and Waterproofers Research and Education Joint Trust Fund (Washington, DC)
  • National Roofing Contractors Association (Rosemont, IL)
  • National Association of Home Builders Research Center (Marlboro, MD)
  • International Union of United Auto Workers (Detroit, MI)
  • Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. (Las Vegas, NV)
  • Home Builders Association of South Carolina (Columbia, SC)
  • West Virginia University Research Corporation (Morgantown, WV)

Three organizations will use awards to address “Focus Four” Hazards (falls, electrocution, caught-in and struck-by):

  • Associated General Contractors of America (Arlington, VA)
  • Compacion Foundation Inc. (Balch Springs, TX)
  • Rocky Mountain Masonry Institute (Denver, CO)

The training grants are named for Susan Harwood, a longtime former OSHA executive, who helped develop standards to protect employees exposed to blood-borne pathogens, cotton dust, benzene, formaldehyde, asbestos and lead in construction.

A complete list of the 2008 Susan Harwood Grant recipients is posted at http://www.osha.gov/dcsp/ote/sharwood/2008_grant_recipients.html.
