OSHA: $10.5 Million in Training Grants Available 
In May, OSHA announced the availability of $10.5 million in Susan Harwood Training Grants to fund training for workers and employers on workplace safety and health hazards, responsibilities, and rights. The grants support hands-on training for targeted audiences such as workers and employers in small businesses; industries with high injury, illness, and fatality rates; and vulnerable workers, including temporary workers.  Grants are available in three areas. Targeted topic training grants are intended to support educational programs that address the identification and prevention of workplace hazards. Grants for training and the development of educational materials support nonprofit organizations that produce classroom-ready materials focused on identifying and preventing occupational hazards. The third area, capacity building, focuses on helping organizations develop new capacity for conducting workplace safety and health training programs.  Grant applications are due by July 2, 2019. See OSHA’s press release for further details.
