The Safety Study Grant and Safety Innovation Award programs seek to encourage innovative ideas for improving employees’ safety within the IMWCA membership and to share projects developed and implemented by members to reduce or eliminate significant safety exposures in the workplace. In addition, the programs demonstrate that those involved with local government are progressive, caring and committed to their employees.
Each project is eligible for either a Safety Study Grant or a Safety Innovation Award per application period.
