Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $75,000 to USA nonprofits, including labor unions, community and faith-based organizations, IHEs, employer associations, and tribal and Native entities to develop materials for occupational safety education and training programs. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to develop classroom quality occupational safety and health training for workers and employers on one of the OSHA-specified topics.

All training materials developed and/or training conducted must serve multiple employers and workers in one or more of the following target audiences: small businesses (less than 250 employees), new businesses, limited English proficiency workers, non-literate and low literacy workers, young workers, temporary workers, minority and other hard-to-reach workers, and workers in high-hazard industries and industries with high fatality rates.

Applicants must propose to develop new training materials addressing one of the OSHA-specified training topics. The materials must include learning objectives, course matrices, presentation/training materials including videos, instructor and participant guides, student handouts, training evaluations, and learning assessments. Grantees must validate the training materials in a live classroom training session.

When developing and disseminating occupational safety and health training materials, consider these four program emphasis areas:

  • Training that focuses on identifying and preventing occupational safety and health hazards in high hazard industries;
  • Training on new OSHA standards;
  • Training on workplace hazards identified by the DOL Strategic Plan, OSHA special emphasis program, or other OSHA priorities (https://www.osha.gov/); and
  • Training workers and employers in small businesses with 250 or fewer employees.
