Northern Illinois University (NIU) has received a $158,531 Susan Harwood Federal Safety Health Training Grant to advance workplace safety and health training. The grant’s main goal is to provide mental health and suicide prevention training to employers and employees, with a focus on small businesses and hard-to-reach, at-risk construction and general industry workers.

The training sessions will cover topics such as recognition, avoidance, and mental health stressor prevention. The courses will be led by John Newquist, an OSHA-authorized outreach trainer, and will range from two to four hours in length. These sessions will be available in face-to-face, virtual, and on-site delivery formats.

All of these courses and training opportunities will be provided through the university’s continuing and professional education unit and the National Safety Education Center. NIU’s Continuing and Professional Education offers non-credit, professional development, and certification prep courses, partnering with OSHA to provide training courses.

The National Safety Education Center at Northern Illinois University is an OSHA training institute education center that provides occupational safety and health training to workers, supervisors, and employers in both the public and private sectors.
