The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) is seeking applications that align to the 2019 investment priority for Workplace Injury Prevention Grants (Grants) from New Zealand registered legal entities. With the recent launch of the Health and Safety at Work Strategy 2018-2028, ACC wants to ensure any co-investment is targeted to workplaces and industry groups that are of higher risk of injury.
For the August 2019 funding round, ACC is seeking proposals from two priority areas:
1. Industries with high rates of injury – proposals that strengthen sector leadership within the health and safety system in higher risk sectors including manufacturing, transport and warehousing, agriculture and commercial fishing
2. Workforces over-represented in injury statistics – proposals that deliver solutions to improve health and safety for workforces over-represented in injury statistics including Māori, Pasifika, and migrant workers
The Grants are available for a range of proposals that include one or more of the following categories: Innovation, System Capability Development and Applied Research.
The funds available is an amount between $50,000 and $500,000 (GST exclusive) per year for a maximum of three years. The applicant organisation will contribute a minimum of 20% of the total cost of the project in cash and/or in-kind.
The Call for Proposals and associated registration for a login on the online portal is available on the ACC website https://www.acc.co.nz/for-business/workplace-health-safety/workplace-injury-prevention-grants/
The deadline for applications is 5pm, Thursday 10 October 2019.
Applicant guidelines are also available by subscribing to this notice.
