Complete the Ergonomic Initiative Employer Application online, using WSI's portal, myWSI. Access to this application is granted to your organization’s myWSI Account Administrator. If you do not have access to myWSI or have questions about myWSI, contact your organization’s myWSI Account Administrator or contact WSI’s Customer Service at 800-777-5033 or email email@example.com.
WSI will approve or deny the application and the employer. A notification email will be sent and details will be explained in your organization’s myWSI account. All correspondence will take place within myWSI.
If approved, WSI will provide a list of providers, such as Fargo Ergonomics, to conduct the on-site visit and ergonomic assessment. When Fargo Ergonomics is chosen as a provider from the drop-down menu and WSI notifies Fargo Ergonomics of the selection, we will call or email your organization’s Account Administrator to schedule the on-site visit.
Fargo Ergonomics conducts the on-site visit and provides the employer with a final ergonomic assessment which is uploaded to myWSI . The employer is now eligible to apply for financial assistance.
To apply for financial assistance, a second application, the Ergonomic Grant Application, must be completed by the employer. This application can also be found in your organization's myWSI account.
Once WSI approves the grant application, and both parties sign the agreement, then the employer may purchase the equipment. Equipment ordered, funds expended, or invoices dated prior to the agreement effective date are not eligible for reimbursement under this program.
In order to receive reimbursement for this grant, the employer must complete the Vendor (supplier or individual) On-Line Registration. If you have questions regarding registration, contact the State Procurement, Vendor Registry Help Desk at 701-328-2773 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Once the employer receives the equipment, they are eligible to submit the Ergonomic Grant Reimbursement Request form, which is also found in your myWSI account. The request must include the invoice(s) and proof of payment.
