Workplace safety grants awarded in Ohio

Posted on October 18th, 2012 No Comments

Safety intervention grants were recently awarded to numerous Ohio-based companies in order for them to focus on decreasing workplace injuries and illnesses. The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, BWC, awarded a total of $265,000 to different Ohio employers in order to promote the Safety Intervention Grant Program.

The program was established so that Ohio employers could prevent workplace accidents that result in illness or injury. The CEO of the Ohio BWC exclaimed that “the biggest impact of these grants will be in helping the recipients’ employees avoid injuries resulting from the manual handling of material.” He goes on to state that repetitive motion injuries are very common in the workplace, and can result in long-term health complications.

Both private and public employers in the state of Ohio are eligible for this type of safety grant. The grants can reach a maximum of $40,000 per company, and work on a 2-1 matching ratio. Once the grants are distributed, surveys and questionnaires are sent out in order to determine the effectiveness of the grants in regards to reducing workplace injuries and accidents.

Ohio companies that received the grants this year from the BWC included the Cincinnati Preserving Company, Auto Gate Inc., Cheeseman LLC, Oxford Township, and the Spring Meadows Extended Care Facility. These companies were awarded varying amounts based on their needs for workplace safety and protection of employees.
