OSHA offering training grants

Proposals are being accepted for approximately $6.6 million in grants to nonprofit organizations for safety and health training under OSHA's Susan Harwood Training Grants program.

Grants are targeted to groups that aim to educate workers and employers in small businesses, non-English speaking workers, and workers who are employed in high hazard industries and industries with high fatality rates.

OSHA is specifically targeting grants for programs that: 1) Support training in the recognition and prevention of ergonomic hazards in industries with high incident rates of ergonomic injuries; and 2) Homeland security programs that train workers and employers on preparing to respond to emergency situations in the workplace. There is approximately $1.2 million available for this grant category. The average award will be $150,000. Grants will be awarded for a 12-month period.

Another target is Institutional Competency Building Grants to assist nonprofit organizations in expanding safety and health training, education and outreach. To be eligible to apply for this grant category, organizations must serve clients nationally or in multi-state areas, and provide safety and health training, education and services to their clients. There is approximately $5.4 million available for this grant category. The average award will be $250,000. Grants will be awarded for a 12-month period.

Details about the grants and the application process are available in the May 22, 2002, Federal Register. Applications are available on OSHA's Web site at or can be obtained from the OSHA Office of Training and Education, Division of Training and Educational Programs, 1555 Times Drive, Des Plaines, Ill., 60018; (847) 297-4810.

Grant applications are due in the Des Plaines office by 4:30 p.m. central time, Friday, June 21, 2002.

The Safety Selfie: It’s time to take a “snap shot” of your safety program and contemplate what others see

We all know perception is reality and that people perceive things differently. As a safety manager, your perception of your safety program almost certainly differs from that of your workers and your managers. We will use our “Safety Selfies” to expose weaknesses, real and perceived, and to talk about how best to make improvements.
