The seminars are sponsored by the US Department of Labor/OSHA as part of the 2011 Susan B. Harwood grant program. NFFS was awarded a targeted topic grant to educate the cast metals industry on the hazards of occupational noise exposure in September 2011. Twelve organizations were selected to develop educational and training materials from the 2011 Targeted Topic list, but NFFS was the only industry trade association on the award list. In total, including Capacity Building grants also awarded by OSHA, only 37 recipients were selected from among a field of more than 190 applicants.
