How Will You Invest Your Safety Grant?


The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) just released a list of the 26 Ohio employers that will share more than $474,000 in grants to purchase equipment designed to substantially reduce or eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses. Here is a listing of recipients by county, including descriptions of planned equipment purchases. The Safety Intervention Grant program provides employers with a 3-to-1 matching amount up to 40,000. Quarterly data reports and follow-up case studies help BWC determine the effectiveness of employers’ safety interventions and establish best practices for accident and injury prevention.
