Hazard Abatement Board

The NYS Hazard Abatement Board (HAB) awards grants for programs that provide occupational safety and health training for public and private employers, labor organizations, educational institutions, non-profit organizations and trade associations. Eligible programs must train and educate workers, supervisors and/or employers and must promote workplace accident and injury prevention. The Board also administers Capital Abatement Program grants to public employers. These grants cover 75% of the cost of capital projects necessary to correct workplace hazards cited by the Public Employee Safety and Health Bureau (PESH) or where recommended in a consultation report. Additionally, the Board may recommend safety and health standards in accordance with the State Labor Law.

On September 10, 2016, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo launched a $5 million education and training grant program to improve occupational health and safety conditions in low-wage industries. The grants will help not-for-profits provide training programs targeting workplace hazards in industries with high rates of injury that often employ immigrant workers. Organizations interested in applying can find more information at http://on.ny.gov/RFA. (Please note that this new initiative is separate and distinct from the annual Request for Proposals for the Training and Education Program on Occupational Safety and Health that is issued by the New York State Hazard Abatement Board.)
