Hazard Abatement Board

Please Note: The Hazard Abatement Board shall meet on Thursday, October 30th 2014 for the purpose of discussing proposed changes to program eligibility criteria relating to directives recently issued by the NYS Division of Budget. The meeting will be held in Albany at the State Office Building Campus, Building #12, Training Rooms D & E, starting at 11:30AM. These proceedings will not be live-streamed but will be recorded and available for viewing on the Hazard Abatement Board’s website shortly thereafter.

The NYS Hazard Abatement Board 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.
