WorkSafeBC Innovation at Work Grant Opportunity


Do you have an idea that could help improve workplace health and safety?

Some of the best solutions start with simple ideas. This research grant can help you develop your idea into a solution that makes a difference in the workplace.

The program supports small scale research projects that lead to the development of practical solutions to address workplace health and safety issues. Research topics should align with our research priorities or our partner’s priorities.
