Lift Assist Equipment Program Application
Significant injuries attributed to lifting, pushing, pulling, and inadequate assistance with heavy lifting continue to be a cost driver for workers' compensation losses. To reduce these types of injuries, IRMA is offering a general equipment grant targeted at general lifting assistance tools to incentivize investment in safe lifting, including hydraulic lift gates for vehicles, back-pack blowers, cylinder lifting equipment, portable cranes or lifts, multipurpose utility carts or dollies, hydraulic dolly and jacks, power lift equipment, hydraulic valve operators, hydraulic hydrant openers, and manhole cover lifting devices (hydraulic or magnetic). See the application for additional grant program requirements. The maximum award amount for this grant is $1,500.
