    The purpose of the Safety Intervention Grant Program is to gather information about the measureable effectiveness of workplace safety interventions so we 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.
    In FY2018, $8,000,000 will be available in set aside funds for Police and Schools.
