WorkSafe Vic to fund $2m workplace safety program
Fresh ideas to reduce workplace harm and improve outcomes for injured workers are being funded through a new WorkSafe grants program.
The round of grants opened on 7 July 2021 and are valued at up to $2 million.
Applicants to the grants must be a community group or local organisation, an employer, or employer or employee representative group and have an ABN. The grants will be awarded across three pre-set tiers.
WorkSafe executive director, external affairs Sam Jenkin says the grants focus on nurturing safety and recovery support innovation in the workplace: “Innovative programs can make a lasting difference to the lives of many Victorian workers and their families and play a lead role in improving safety in many workplaces.
“That is why we are delighted that organisations can now seek the resources to turn their groundbreaking safety and recovery ideas into sustainable workplace improvements.”
Grant applications can be submitted online until Wednesday, 18 August and further information on how to apply for a grant can be found here.
