ICWUC Center for Worker Health & Safety Education

Still Leading the way......

Established in 1987, the ICWUC Center for Worker Health and Safety Education is still at the forefront of worker health and safety training and nationally recognized as a leader in worker protection. Today the Center’s consortium partners in educating workers about HAZWOPER and many other health and safety topics are the International Association of Machinists and Aero Space Workers (IAMAW), the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU), the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), the University of Cincinnati (UC), Department of Environmental Health, the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (NCOSH), and National Nurses United (NNU). The membership of these organizations is a portion of those served by the Center’s training with other training offered to many other labor, environmental and governmental groups as well

Our center is funded by several Grants through NIEHS & DOT

Main NIEHS Grant

The core NIEHS program, Hazardous Waste Worker Training (HWWT) since 1988 has been a four-day, hands-on, collateral duty chemical emergency response class (CER). This class has expanded to a wide range of awareness programs for a wide variety of workplace hazards. Under an NIEHS disaster grant, the Center provided training at numerous disasters including the World Trade Center collapse, the BP Oil Spill, Hurricanes Katrina, Sandy, Harvey, Irma, and Maria and the Ebola Outbreak and Response.

DOE Grant

The Center has an NIEHS grant for training at multiple Department of Energy (DOE) sites; Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Kansas City, Missouri, Hanford, Washington and Los Alamos, New Mexico. The worker trainers deliver all onsite training, design new programs annually and are second to none.

DOT Grant

The ICWUC Center has a Department of Transportation grant to develop worker trainers with the ICWUC, United Auto Workers (UAW), American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). This grant targets workers at facilities where hazardous chemicals are loaded and unloaded, shipped or received, or handle biological wastes.
