Workplace Safety Grant Program

Workplace Safety Grant Program


The prevention of occupational injury and illness is in everyone’s best interest. "This program, entitled "Workplace Safety Training and Education Grant Program," is administered by the Department of Industrial Accidents, Office of Safety. The primary purpose of this Safety Grant is 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 measures.


Each fiscal year, the DIA awards safety grants to qualifying Massachusetts employers. All grantees must be based in and operating within the Commonwealth and its employees must be covered by the Massachusetts Workers' Compensation Act - G.L. c. 152. Applicants must also be in compliance with all state and federal laws. The maximum grant award is $25,000.


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.
