More information

SHIP review staff consists of 3 grant managers and a program manager. The GRC is actually two separate committees - one specializing in safety and health and the other in return-to-work. Each group consists of 7-8 members and is made up of individuals who hold experience/expertise in the topic area being reviewed: Occupational safety and health or Return to work/Industrial Insurance.

Evaluation form templates are available upon request. This entire process could take 3-4 months to complete.
