Deadline Approaches for Employee Safety Grants
The Board of Trustees of the ACCG Workers’ Compensation Fund (ACCG-GSIWCF) created an Employee Safety Grant Program to provide financial assistance to members for the purpose of reducing employees’ injuries through additional training, equipment, and services. There will be $500,000 available to eligible Fund members in 2020. Those who are eligible are active members as of the time of the distribution who have earned the 2020 Safety Discount and are current on their premiums.
Information about the grant was emailed to eligible Fund members in April, including a one-page application and the requirements. Applications will be accepted until August 31, 2020, and all purchases must be made by December 1, 2020. Examples of previously approved requests include: personal protective equipment, body armor, fire department turnout gear or washers/dryers for gear, ergo equipment, first aid equipment such as AEDs, and fees for safety-related courses.
The opportunity to receive these grant funds is just one of many reasons to be a member of the ACCG Workers’ Compensation Fund.
