Grantee Produced Training Materials: The Susan Harwood Training Grant
OSHA provides training and education programs for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in their workplaces through Susan Harwood Training Program grants. Many Harwood grantees develop training materials and products that address workplace safety and health hazards as a part of their grant activities. In an effort to make these products available to a broader audience for training or self-development, OSHA is posting these training materials on the Harwood Webpage where they may be accessed and downloaded at no charge.
