Training and Education for Workplace Accident Prevention

No matter the industry, it’s clear that educating employees about accident prevention is a cornerstone of ensuring on-the-job safety. Accordingly, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) maintains a grant program designed to help nonprofit organizations with funding for programs that facilitate these critical objectives.

 

Called the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program, this fund makes available a total of $1.5 million to nonprofit, community and faith-based organizations, employer associations, labor unions, joint labor/management associations, and colleges and universities for accident prevention education.

 

The program targets two important areas for assistance: the development of materials for worker training and education along with training grants for specific safety topics, including fall protection in construction, agricultural safety, hair and nail salon hazards, and hazard communication for chemical exposure. While it's essential that all workers receive adequate training for workplace safety, Susan Harwood grants particularly look to assist the education of underserved, low-literacy workers in high-danger industries. These workers are especially at risk for sustaining serious work injuries that merit workers' compensation.
