OSHA has announced $10.5 million in FY 2015 Susan Harwood Training Grants to 80 non-profit organizations. Grants were awarded for the following grant categories: Capacity Building Developmental, Capacity Building Pilot, Targeted Topic Training, and Training and Educational Materials.

The Susan Harwood Training Grant Program awards grants to nonprofit organizations on a competitive basis. Awards are issued annually based on Congressional appropriation.

The focus of the program is to provide training and education for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, and prevention of safety and health hazards in their workplaces, and to inform workers of their rights and employers of their responsibilities under the OSH Act. Target audiences include underserved, low-literacy, and workers in high-hazard industries. Since 1978, over 2.1 million workers have been trained through this program.
