Thirty-five employers will share $891,979 in grants from the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation to purchase equipment designed to substantially reduce or eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses, the agency announced Jan. 29. The recipients will use the funds to buy equipment to reduce or eliminate workers' exposure to fall hazards, lifting and material handling, repetitive motions, electrical hazards, and more, according to the list posted by the agency.

"This is money well spent, and I am pleased to announce these grants today," said BWC Administrator/CEO Stephanie B. McCloud. "When employers invest in safety, they have fewer workplace injuries and related expenses, saving dollars they can use to grow their businesses and help Ohio prosper. When that happens, we all win."

The recipient companies operate in 28 of Ohio's 88 counties.

BWC's Safety Intervention Grant program matches an employer's investment 3-to-1, up to a maximum of $40,000. Quarterly data reports and follow-up case studies measure the effectiveness of employers' safety interventions and establish best practices for accident and injury prevention.
