OSHA Offers $3M in Infectious Disease Prevention Training

March 7, 2022

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced the availability of US$3.2 million in funds from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 for Susan Harwood Workplace Safety and Health Training on Infectious Disease.

The funds will be allocated for training and education to help workers and employers identify and prevent work-related infectious diseases, including COVID-19. In accordance with OSHA regulations, training topics must focus either on COVID-19 specifically or infectious diseases broadly. The maximum awarded for each grant is $160,000 for a 12-month performance period.

This funding opportunity is separate from OSHA’s 2022 Susan Harwood training grants. Applications for the infectious disease prevention program must be submitted here by May 6, 2022.
