    FREE Safety Training Classes 
    for Your Small Business

    Harper College offers FREE occupational safety training classes

    We know many employers struggle to identify what a safe workplace will

    In addition to helping participants better understand how COVID-19 spreads and

    Following the pilot, the application portal will be opened to the public. For the first 21 days that the program is open, the SBA will prioritize reviewing applications from small businesses owned by women, veterans, and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. Following the 21-day period, all eligible applicants are encouraged to submit applications.
