MIOSHA Offering Safety and Health Improvement Grants

There is $500,000 available from the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration for these grants, which are part of the agency’s celebration of the 40th anniversary of Michigan's program for workplace safety and health.

Michigan employers can apply now for matching Safety and Health Improvement Program (MiSHIP) grant awards of up to $5,000 from the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA), which is offering a total of $500,000 in the program. It's part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Michigan's program for workplace safety and health.

The grants are open to qualifying employers to purchase safety and health-related equipment. "We are encouraging employers to step up workplace safety and health during MIOSHA's 40-year anniversary," said Martha Yoder, MIOSHA's director, on Oct. 2. "With a total of $500,000 available from MIOSHA, that's a $1 million investment in keeping Michigan's workers safe and healthy."

To qualify for a grant, an employer must have 250 employees or fewer and must come under the jurisdiction of MIOSHA. A qualified safety professional or a safety committee must have conducted a site-specific evaluation, and there must be a written report with recommendations based on the evaluation unless the project is for lifting equipment in residential care facilities or fall protection equipment in residential construction. In addition, the employer must be able to match the grant money awarded, and all estimated project costs must be covered.

Projects that impact employment sites that provide goods, manufacturing or processing jobs for the majority of workers, and also businesses within the current MIOSHA Strategic Plan and other high-hazard workplaces, will be given priority.
