BWC Safety Grants Going to the Dogs


10-14-16_lb_wc_bwcsafety-grants-going-to-dogsOhio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) Administrator/CEO Sarah Morrison visited Rosehill Veterinary Hospital, Reynoldburg, to recognize the company for its commitment to safety of its workers and the family pet.  The hospital received a $40,000 BWC Safety Intervention Grant to protect its employees from injuries associated with x-raying animals; it invested in a digital radiography and x-ray table. Of course you don’t x-ray pets in your manufacturing facility but consider how you could improve safety by investing in equipment that reduces your risks and exposures. BWC’s Safety Intervention Grant Program assists Ohio employers in purchasing equipment to substantially reduce or eliminate injuries and illnesses associated with a particular task or operation.  Learn more about the program here and view stories of previous grant recipients at BWC’s YouTube channel.   10/13/2016
