For the fourth year in a row, eligible members of the ACCG Workers’ Compensation Program can earn their portion of $500,000 in Employee Safety Grant funds. This grant program began in 2019 by the authorization of the ACCG Workers’ Compensation Board of Trustees, providing financial assistance to program members for the purpose of reducing employees’ work-related injuries. Funds can be used for additional training, equipment, or services. Eligible members are active members as of the time of the distribution who have earned the 2022 Safety Discount and are current on their contributions (premiums) to the program.
An email was sent to the members on March 16, 2022, including a one-page application and the simple requirements. Applications will be accepted beginning April 1,2022 through July 31, 2022, with all purchases completed by October 31,2022. Approved grant items 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.
