This is an unprecedented opportunity to implement a PowerMate® Safety Moving Solution for your organization and avoid preventable lifting related injuries and accidents!

From the OhioBWC web site July 11th, 2013:

OhioBWC - Employer:  (SafetyGRANT$)

More money, more options
Governor John R. Kasich recently approved an increase in funding for the safety intervention grant program from $5 million to $15 million. This means we're also increasing our match in the program. Effective July, 1, 2013, we will match every employer dollar with three dollars. Finally, we restored some safety interventions previously on our moratorium list (items we would not fund).

The purpose of the Safety Intervention Grant$ Program is to gather information about the effectiveness of safety interventions so that BWC may share the results with Ohio employers. The program is available to any Ohio state-fund or public employer who wishes to purchase equipment to substantially reduce or eliminate injuries and illnesses associated with a particular task or operation. The program is designed to work and partner with Ohio employers to establish safety intervention best practices for accident and injury prevention.
