What is WSI’s Ergonomic Initiative Grant?
Workforce Safety & Insurance’s Ergonomic Initiative Grant Program provides employers resources, including financial assistance, to address ergonomic issues. The purpose of the program is to reduce or eliminate cumulative-type injuries at the workplace. Fargo Ergonomics is an approved WSI contracted provider to complete ergonomic assessments and to provide recommendations to decrease the risk of injury.
WSI provides financial assistance for provider services under this program. WSI pays 75% of the provider fees and the employer pays 25%. The provider’s work and services will vary depending on the needs of the employer. Factors that determine the work and services include the number of employees, number of job classifications, type of work performed, and claims trends history (frequency and severity).
