Dr. Herbert N. Wright Memorial Safety and Health Training Award Program
The Dr. Herbert N. Wright Memorial Safety and Health Training Award Program provides employees with the opportunity to develop and enhance their ability to identify and control workplace hazards. Funds are available for disbursement for educational, training, and skill building activities at local or remote sites. The maximum individual award under this program is $3,000. An individual may apply for more than one award within the current contract period.
A completed Application, with attachments, may be submitted at any time, but at least 45 days prior to the commencement of the project or activity. The decision to fund an application is at the discretion of the Committee.
A Program Evaluation must be submitted within 30 days of completing the project or activity. If the funded project or activity has already been completed at the time of the award, the evaluation must be completed within 30 days of the award notification. The Committee may postpone taking action on subsequent applications submitted by the award recipient until the Program Evaluation is received.
The General Program Information section provides information pertaining to the disbursement of New York State/United University Professions Joint Labor-Management Committees' funds, including application follow-up, acknowledgement of committee funds, expenditure limitations, reimbursement of expenditures, equipment policy, and contacts.
