Fall protection, shipyard safety, and crane and chemical hazards are among the critical health and safety areas eligible for new training grants from the Department of Labor.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is soliciting applications under the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program to fund training for workers and employers in recognizing and addressing workplace hazards.

Falls are a safety training topic targeted for support by OSHA.

Falls—responsible for one in three construction-related deaths—are a safety training topic targeted for support by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

A total of $1.2 million is available to nonprofit, community and faith-based organizations; employer associations; labor unions; joint labor/management associations; and colleges and universities.

Focus on High Hazards, Small Business

“The Department of Labor is committed to ensuring that workers and employers are fully aware of health and safety hazards, and how they can be prevented,” said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis.

“The programs funded by these grants will supply hard-to-reach workers, small businesses and those in high-hazard industries with the knowledge and tools they need to support safe and healthful workplaces.”

Two types of training grants will be awarded: targeted topic training grants, which focus on the most common and most dangerous hazards; and training and educational materials development grants.

Both types of grants are for one year and may be used for materials and programs addressing hazards and prevention strategies for employees and employers.

Eligible topics are fall protection, grain handling operations, crane safety, workplace violence, hazard communication for chemical exposure, injury and illness prevention programs, and shipyard safety hazards.

Eligibility and Applications

State and local government agencies are not eligible for the grants. However, public institutions of higher education may apply in accordance with 29 Code of Federal Regulations Part 95.

The full solicitation has more details. Applicants must register before completing the application, and applications must be received electronically by 4 p.m. EDT May 17, 2012.

For more information, contact Kimberly Mason or Jim Barnes or call 847-759-7700.
