Ohio employers receive $677,000 in workplace safety grants

COLUMBUS - Twenty-nine Ohio employers will share $677,000 in grants from the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) to purchase equipment designed to substantially reduce or eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses.

"Preventing accidents and illnesses is clearly good for workers, and it is also a smart move for businesses to keep their premiums low," said BWC Administrator/CEO Sarah Morrison. "Employers that invest in safety know that a healthy, productive workforce leads to a prosperous business and a healthier bottom line."
