Safety training for the workplace is a must regardless of the industry. To ensure that workers have a safe environment each day, OSHA puts strict compliance guidelines in place that workplaces must adhere to or risk fines and penalties.
Everything from offering proper training for employees to performing regular maintenance and quality checks at the facility is part of the requirements. With these safeguards in place, injury, illness and fatality rates decrease and businesses have an opportunity to thrive.
OSHA has just announced the availability of new funding to the tune of $10.5M to help underserved organizations – from labor unions, Indian tribes, college and university, faith organizations and others. This funding is available specifically to help in the areas of Training and Educational Materials Development, Targeted Topic Training and Capacity Building.
With the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program, workplaces will have the opportunity to develop educational programs and quality training for their workplace as well as develop plans for prevention based on the hazards present in their specific premises and the money needed to build training plans that are effective and thorough.
Businesses looking to gain access to the grants have been asked to apply no later than 11:59 p.m., ET, on September 2, 2018.
