NRCA receives OSHA grant

NRCA recently was awarded $137,000 through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) Susan Harwood Training Grant Program. The grant program provides education and training for workers and employers to help them recognize workplace safety and health hazards, implement injury and illness prevention measures, and inform them of their rights and responsibilities.

NRCA has been awarded the Susan Harwood Training Grant 12 times, receiving a total of $2.8 million.

The grant allows NRCA to offer its Roofing Industry Fall Protection A to Z class in English and Spanish free of charge for a year. The interactive class focuses on fall-protection systems and includes up-to-date state-specific OSHA requirements. This one-day class also features demonstrations of equipment and techniques for self-rescue and relief of suspension trauma.
