L&I Taking Applications for SHIP Grants

During the past two years, the Safety and Health Investment Projects grants have funded 19 safety and health projects at a total of $2.5 million.

Washington state's Department of Labor & Industries has a new round of safety and health grants available through its Safety and Health Investment Projects (SHIP) grant program and will accept applications until Oct. 31, 2017, for them. The agency is looking for innovative ideas for training, equipment, or strategies to protect workers and prevent injuries.

During the past two years, SHIP grants have funded 19 safety and health projects at a total of $2.5 million. The recent grants have funded projects to prevent injuries among special-education teachers and to create a best practices manual to reduce the risk of cancer in firefighters. A list of successful grant projects is available at L&I's Safety Grants website.

SHIP grants are intended to encourage innovative solutions to occupational health and safety challenges and to promote labor and management working together to make workplaces safer; grants also are available for return-to-work projects that find new ways to help injured workers get back on the job. L&I said the return-to-work grant period is open until further notice.

These grants are capped at $150,000, and the projects they fund must be completed in 24 months. For more information, visit the grants website or call 360-902-5588.
