Final Report for Susan Harwood Training Grant

This report, produced by Hunter College's Center for Occupational and Environmental Health and the Paper, Allied-Industrial, Chemical and Energy Workers International Union (PACE), was created at the conclusion of their three-year, Susan Harwood Training Grant (10/1997 - 9/2000). The grant funded a "Train-the-Trainer and Leadership Ergonomics Program" and allowed the Center and union to train over 600 workers across 13 states on ergonomic issues in the "papermaking and processing industry." Those trained by the Center went on to train 6000 additional workers during the same three year period. The report includes training materials used, course and participant evaluations, and discussion of project goals and effects.

Formally established in 1990 by CUNY's Board of Trustees, the Hunter College Center for Occupational and Environmental Health was founded with the mission "to promote community and workplace health" across the New York metropolitan area. Working with community groups, unions, governmental agencies, private employers, and educational institutions, the Center educated hundreds of thousands over the course of its history.
