DIA's Workplace Safety Grant

Because Being Safe at Work is NO ACCIDENT.

Workplace Safety Grant Application Update: The DIA Office of Safety has been working hard to improve the application process for the Workplace Safety Grant, including moving from a paper-based model to a user-friendly and efficient digital system. We hope to begin accepting applications for the next round of grants sometime in the spring of 2023. We look forward to working with you. Remember, Being Safe at Work, is NO Accident.

Strong preference will be given to first-time applicants, small and midsize businesses, consortium applicants, and organizations, that demonstrate a compelling program design that redresses prior worksite injuries and/or creates programs of injury prevention.

The primary purpose of the Workplace 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.

If you need help in obtaining grants to fund training programs, then we want to hear from you! Tell us your story. What are your training goals? Who will be trained? How do you plan to execute a training program? We are committed to helping you through the process and are open to discussing your training requests. 

The application process is easy. Complete the simple five (5) page application and send it to us. Please remember to include your contracted documents with your application. 

The following are not inclusive of all training types but represent some of the more frequently sought training topics: OHSA 10 or 30, Aerial lift, Fall protection, Crane & Rigger Training, Forklift Training, Ergonomics, CPR/AED, Injury Prevention, Fire/Electrical, Asbestos, CTD’s, Defensive Driving, Lead Hazards, Toxins Right to Know/Hazard Communication, Winter driving, Lockout Tagout, Chain saw safety, Trenching Excavation, Confined space- trench rescue.
