Each state has its own workforce safety and insurance grant program to support, fund, and encourage worker health and safety. One state, North Dakota, provides a few options to companies. Companies must select a “provider”
Any company can apply for the grant dollars, however, there is a finite amount of money which is replenished each year. The WSI Ergonomic Initiative and Ergonomic Grant Step-by-Step Process can be found at http://www.workforcesafety.com/
The WSI cannot recommend products; healthcare providers performing the assessments can recommend products. Increasingly providers in North Dakota and all states with similar grant program are suggesting Lift’n Buddy as a direct solution to avoiding injuries.
