Dover Company Receives Safety Grant

Mary Alice Reporting:

(September 8th) Dover, Ohio – A company in Dover is getting a grant from the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation to purchase safety equipment.

Administrator and CEO Sarah Morrison explained that Inca Presswood Pallets is receiving $12,446 to purchase a lift assist system and a pneumatic lift table.

“To help them maneuver heavy boxes so that the workers don’t have the same risk for back injuries. This is to reduce them twisting, stooping, bending, and carrying these heavy boxes on their own. We want to reduce back strains and other injuries.”

In total, $375,000 will be distributed to businesses in 11 Ohio counties.

Morrison encouraged businesses to apply for the safety grant and more information can be found on the BWC’s YouTube channel or visit www.bwc.ohio.gov.
