Past examples of grant projects include:

The Oregon Legislature launched the Occupational Safety and Health Education and Training Grant Program in 1990. Award recommendations are made by Oregon OSHA’s Safe Employment Education and Training Advisory Committee, a group with members from business, organized labor, and government.​


The Worksite Redesign Program which existed from 1995-2001 offered research and development and product grants to address workplace safety, health, and ergonomic problems.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
