Ohio Workplace Safety Grants for Construction Companies

Published: Feb 03, 2017 by Luther Liggett

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation announced an award of Workplace Safety Grants of almost $1 million to 18 public employers and 28 private employers in 28 Ohio Counties.

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. Applicants apply for a grant to purchase equipment to substantially reduce or eliminate injuries and illnesses associated with a particular task or operation.

As an example, Dunbar Mechanical. Inc. of Toledo received funding to purchase two material lifts to reduce risk.

Goettle Equipment Company in Hamilton County received over $32,000.00 to purchase equipment to reduce the risk of injury assisting contractors in earth retention and deep foundation systems.
