The prevention of occupational injury and illness is in everyone’s best interest. This Grant entitled, “Workplace Safety Training and Education Grant Program” is issued under the provisions of the Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 23E, Section 3, and administered by the Department of Industrial Accidents, Office of Safety. The primary purpose of this Safety Grant is designed to fund programs that reduce the risk of injury and illness to workers and promote safe and healthy conditions in the workplace through training, education, and other preventative programs.
Each fiscal year the grant program awards a maximum of $25,000 to qualifying Massachusetts businesses and organizations operating within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts covered by Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Law. (M.G.L. Ch. 152).
Strong preference will be given to first-time applicants, consortium applicants, employers, and organizations who demonstrate a compelling program design that addresses an injury history, potential injury, or provides a proactive approach to injury prevention.
Grants are awarded to employers that best satisfy the Safety Grant Program goals.
