Employer Safety Improvement Money Available
An official with the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services says employers can now apply online for money to improve their workplace safety. Andrea Hixon says the program was created by the state legislature earlier this year. It offers Wyoming employers the opportunity to apply for up to $10, 000 to address safety issues in the workplace as well as take any other steps that might contribute to worker safety. Hixon says the money does require a 10 percent employer match for the amount awarded through the program. Employers can apply at wyomingworkforce.org.
