Did you know that free money may be available to increase your safety? Let’s say you have a need for a $10,000 device that will add considerable safety to a job being performed. Ohio BWC (Bureau of Worker’s Compensation) may provide $7500 and your part will be only $2500!
The program is available to any Ohio state-fund or public employer who wishes to purchase equipment to substantially reduce or eliminate injuries and illnesses associated with a particular task or operation. The program is designed to work and partner with Ohio employers to establish safety intervention best practices for accident and injury prevention.
With the safety intervention grant, private and public employers are eligible for a 3-to-1 matching grant, up to a maximum grant award of $40,000 for each eligibility cycle. This means BWC gives $3 for every $1 the employer contributes.
