MIOSHA Safety Equipment Grant Program

Are you looking to improve and update your safety equipment? The MIOSHA Workplace Improvement to Safety and Health (MIWISH) Program awards employers in the state of Michigan a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $5,000, to qualifying employers for projects designed to reduce the risk of injury and illness to their workers based on safety and health site-specific hazard surveys. The grant money can be used for a variety of things, like fall harnesses, lanyards and self-retracting lifelines (SRL). The grant money can also be used to purchase or update your confined space equipment, like tripods, blowers and (most importantly) 4-gas meters. This is a reimbursement program, and grants are awarded to employers that best satisfy the MIWISH goals. If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the available funds, applications will be evaluated based on a first-come, first-served policy. Grant awards are limited to one per company. Click here to download MIOSHA’s MIWISH grant application.
