Division of Safety & Hygiene grant recipients
Ohio law requires BWC to publish information about those who receive awards through our safety and wellness grant programs. At the bottom of this page
is a link to a list of those recipients, including the name of the recipient, the type of award and the amount.
Safety intervention grants
The Safety Intervention Grant$ Program provides financial assistance to state-fund employers or
public employer taxing districts toward the purchase of equipment to substantially reduce or eliminate
injuries and illnesses associated with a particular task or operation. Employers are eligible for a 3-to-1
matching grant, up to a maximum of $40,000. Employers participating in the program provide BWC a year-end case study and quarterly
reports to document their experience with the equipment. This data is used to establish
safety best practices in the
field of occupational safety and health.
Drug-Free Safety Program (DFSP) grants
DFSP grants are available to assist employers implementing the DFSP at the basic or advanced level. Employers operating a comparable program are not
eligible for DFSP grant funding.
The new DFSP grants guide is available for
services supplied under the DFSP program requirements (services rendered after July 1, 2010). You also can
view a chart that summarizes the new DFSP grants
policy and covered items.
Workplace Wellness Grant Program
This program assists employers with the creation and implementation of a workplace wellness program.
The program's goal is to limit and control the escalating cost of workers' compensation claims by
helping employers develop health promotion programs for their employees. The secondary goals are to
reduce health-care costs for employers, and improve the health and well-being of the workforce.
Participating employers may receive $300 per participating employee over a four-year period, with a
maximum of $15,000 per policy. They provide BWC aggregate health risk appraisal, biometrics and
employee data, and a year-end case study to continue into the next year. This data is used to establish
wellness program best practices
and to determine the effectiveness of the programs.
