The Manufacturers’ Association was awarded a $147,000 training grant by the Federal Susan Harwood Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which will be used to support warehouse safety in central and south central Pennsylvania. The training grant, focusing on “Warehouse Hazards”, will help workers and employers recognize serious workplace hazards, including implementing injury prevention measures and understanding rights and responsibilities under the Occupational Safety and Health Act. The grant audience will focus on employees in warehouse facilities and manufacturers, especially small businesses.
Training will include ergonomics, forklift safety, and slips, trips, and falls and training materials will be provided in English and Spanish. The Association will soon schedule and offer these no-cost public warehouse safety training courses, with dates and locations throughout central Pennsylvania. Warehousing and manufacturers will also be able to host training sessions at their own locations, in conjunction with the Association.
