Workplace education and training projects

Worksite redesign projects

Past examples of grant projects include:

  • Development of safe-lifting guidelines
  • Spanish-language flip charts designed to help prevent heat-related illness among forest workers
  • An educational program for nurses to prevent ergonomic-related injuries


The Oregon Legislature launched the Occupational Safety and Health Education and Training Grant Program in 1990 (ORS 654.191). Award recommendations are made by Oregon OSHA’s Safe Employment Education and Training Advisory Committee (OAR 437-001-0810), a group with members from business, organized labor, and government.

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