The Department of Industrial Accidents has extended the application deadline to Jan. 31 for Workplace Safety Training Grants.
The program’s goal is to promote safe and healthy conditions in the workplace through training, education and other preventative programs. Companies and organizations of any size operating within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts covered by state’s workers’ compensation law (Chapter 152) are eligible for funding.
The Department of Industrial Accidents and partner organizations can set up an information session via Zoom or telephone at a municipality’s request to discuss its eligibility for the Workplace Safety and Training Grant. This is an opportunity for the city or town to discuss its training needs.
In these sessions, the DIA will provide an overview of the grant and its benefits, including the amount of available funding, program guidelines, and how to apply.
Organizations whose training need is not large enough to justify a maximum grant can apply jointly with other organizations that have similar training needs (Consortium Grant).
