Within the framework of the ISI 2017 call for projects, for a total amount of €10 million, INAIL wants to support micro and small enterprises operating in specific sectors of activity in their plans for improving health and safety in the workplace. The 8th edition (the project was launched in 2010) aims to support enterprises in the wood and ceramics sector in particular.

The INAIL subsidies, non-repayable, can be as much as €50,000 per project. Enterprises must make their requests online. The tool can also be used to make simulations relating to the project and thereby check that the eligibility threshold has been reached. The factors taken into account for awarding the overall score concern both the characteristics of the enterprise and the specific features of the project. The parameters selected include the number of employees, the enterprise’s activity code, the type of action taken and the social partners’ involvement.

The financing procedure goes hand-in-hand with a campaign aiming to transmit the message that investing in occupational safety and health is not merely a cost but a value.
