OSHA awards $8 million in grants

|  September 17, 2010 |

OSHA awarded $8 million in Susan Harwood Safety and Health Capacity Building Training grants to 45 organizations.

These organizations – including nonprofit and community/faith-based groups, employer associations, labor unions, colleges and universities – will provide safety and health programs that educate workers and employers in industries with high injury and fatality rates.

The primary focus is on hard to reach and vulnerable populations, such as workers with limited English proficiency and low literacy rates, young workers and small business employers.
