Ohio BWC Awards More Than $350k To Support Workplace Safety


Columbus, OH (WorkersCompensation.com) – The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) has awarded safety intervention grants to 16 Ohio employers totaling more than $350,000. BWC designed the Safety Intervention Grant Program to assist Ohio employers in reducing illnesses and injuries and to create a partnership with them to establish best practices for accident and injury prevention.

“These grants can be very helpful to employers that want to create safer workplaces for their employees but are discouraged by the expense,” said BWC Administrator/CEO Steve Buehrer. “They also help to establish best practices by allowing BWC to measure the effectiveness of each employer's safety interventions and advise other employers on how to contend with similar safety concerns.”

Ohio private and public employers are eligible for the grants, which include a 2-to-1 matching amount up to a maximum of $40,000 for a total of $60,000 – $20,000 from the employer and $40,000 from BWC. Quarterly data reports and follow-up case studies help BWC determine the effectiveness of employers' safety interventions and establish best practices.
