Grant History and General Information
Since 1998, a total of 2,451 Loss Prevention Grants valued at $6.24 million have been awarded to Fund members in the Workers' Compensation, Property, and Auto programs. The purpose of the grant program is to provide our members with opportunities to reduce losses and raise awareness of safety issues. In past years, grant monies have been used to mitigate potential loss exposures through the purchase of personal protective equipment, mechanical lifting devices, fall protection equipment, funding defensive driving training and driver improvement courses, addressing fire protection and electrical safety initiatives, and obtaining facilities security equipment. Grants are awarded based on the quality of the written justification and the expected loss prevention outcomes.
