Sen. Gomez Announces Grants for Safety Training

BOSTON — State Sen. Adam Gomez recently joined the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development (EOLWD) in announcing safety-training grant awards through the Department of Industrial Accidents for Springfield Housing Authority, the city of Springfield, Behavioral Health Network, Futureworks Inc., Pioneer Valley Concrete, and Springfield Water and Sewer.

“Proactive training and safety programs will reduce the risk of future injury and illness to the workforce across the Commonwealth,” Gomez said. “In particular, the organizations that received these grants are invaluable to the residents and stakeholders of the Hampden district.”

The Workplace Safety Grant Program encourages organizations to have a proactive approach to safety. As part of EOLWD, the Department of Industrial Accidents administers this initiative to provide Massachusetts companies with the financial assistance to promote safe and healthy conditions in the workplace by funding preventive safety training and education programs.
