State Representative Bill Hayes (R-Harrison Twp.) has announced that the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation has awarded a Logan business a Workplace Safety Grant, which is part of a larger effort to help Ohio employers establish best practices for illness and injury prevention.
Tyjen Inc. (Slater Builder Supply), which offers a full line of masonry products for construction projects, received $10,739 for an automatic shrink wrapper. Tyjen will use the wrapper to reduce the risk of injury such as musculoskeletal disorders, in addition to the potential for lacerations and slips, trips and falls.
“I am proud of the partnership that has been formed between Tyjen Inc. and the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation,” Hayes said. “Taking the initiative to keep their employees safe is something that should make Tyjen, all of Hocking County and all of Ohio proud.”
In total, the BWC awarded 13 Ohio businesses more than $273,000 in an effort to make Ohio workplaces safer.
