Susan Harwood Training Grant, FY 2008: The Susan Harwood Training Grant Program provides funds for programs to train employees and employers to recognize, avoid, and prevent safety and health hazards in their workplaces. The program emphasizes four areas: 1) Educating employees and employers in small businesses. For purposes of this grant program, a small business is one with 250 or fewer employees; 2) Training employees and employers about new OSHA standards; 3) Training at-risk employee and employer populations; and 4) Training employees and employers about high risk activities or hazards identified by OSHA through the Department of Labors Strategic Plan, or as part of an OSHA special emphasis program. Under this solicitation for grant applications, OSHA will accept applications for the Targeted Topic training grant category. Organizations funded for Targeted Topic training category grants are expected to develop and provide occupational safety and health training and/or educational programs addressing one of the topics selected by OSHA, recruit employees and employers for the training, and conduct and evaluate the training. Grantees are also expected to conduct follow-up evaluations with individuals trained by their program to determine what, if any, changes were made to reduce hazards in their workplaces as a result of the training. If your organization plans to train employees or employers in any of the 26 states operating OSHA-approved State Plans, State OSHA requirements for that state must be included in the training. Eighteen different training topics were selected for this grant announcement. OSHA may award grants for some or all of the listed Targeted Topic training topics. Applicants wishing to address more than one of the announced grant topics must submit a separate grant application for each topic. See full announcement for details.
