Nearly $5 million in federal funds is now available for training in fall protection, chemical exposures, shipyard hazards and other critical health and safety areas.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is soliciting applications for $4.7 million in training grants that can be used for a variety of topics, materials and programs.

“The Department of Labor is committed to ensuring that businesses and workers are fully aware of health and safety rules,” said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. “The programs funded by these grants will supply small businesses, hard-to-reach workers and those in high-hazard industries with the knowledge and tools they need to support safe and healthful workplaces.”

Grants are available for fall protection and shipyard hazard materials and training.

The Susan Harwood Training Grant Program is available to nonprofit, community and faith-based organizations, employer associations and labor unions.

The grants will fund worker and employer training to recognize workplace hazards and control measures, and to understand their rights and responsibilities under OSHA. 

4 Types of Grants

Four types of grants are available: capacity building pilot; capacity building developmental; targeted topic training; and training and educational materials development.

Capacity building pilot grants are intended to help organizations assess their needs and formulate a capacity building plan before moving forward with a full-scale safety and health education program. These grants are for organizations that already provide OSH training, education and other assistance and are seeking to expand their capacity. 

Grants for targeted topics and development of training and educational materials support the development of quality training materials and programs for workers and employers addressing workplace hazards and prevention strategies. Topics, which are designated by OSHA, include safe bin entry in grain handling operations, crane safety, fall protection, hazardous communication for chemical exposure and shipyard safety hazards.

Agencies of state and local governments are not eligible to apply for these grants. However, state and local government-supported institutions of higher education may apply in accordance with 29 Code of Federal Regulations Part 95.

Application Details

The solicitation for grant applications is available at http://www.grants.gov.  Applicants must register before completing the application, which takes multiple days to complete. Applications must be submitted electronically and received by 4:30 p.m. EDT July 20. No extensions will be granted.

More information is available on OSHA’s website. For questions, call 847-759-7700 or email Kimberly Mason at mason.kimberly@dol.gov or Jim Barnes at barnes.jim@dol.gov.
