The purpose of the Safety Intervention Grant Program is to gather information about the measureable effectiveness of workplace safety interventions so we may share the results with Ohio employers. 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.
In return, employers will submit to BWC eight prescribed, quarterly data reports and one case study with a cost benefit analysis one year after the date of the intervention. We’ll use this information to determine the effectiveness of the intervention and share successes with other employers.
