Safety Grants 2022

WRITTEN BY

GOALS OF THIS GUIDE

LWCC seeks to foster a culture of wellbeing in Louisiana’s workforce, bettering Louisiana one business and one worker at a time.  In addition to our robust safety offerings, delivered by our Safety Services Team, in 2022 we are offering policyholders the opportunity to enhance workplace safety with the assistance of LWCC’s Safety Grants Program.

The Safety Grants Program will provide one-time grant funds to policyholders to be used to implement safety measures.  Following the six-week application period, a grants committee will select safety projects to receive funds based on their impact on workplace safety.

Grant funds must be utilized in 2022 but do not require a match.
