In 2022, the Workers’ Compensation Fund will distribute up to $550,000 to Fund members in an effort to promote products
that will help decrease common injuries that occur inside the classroom.
This year, the Workers’ Compensation Safety Program is focusing on one of the main claim drivers in the fund – slips, trips, and falls. Fund members will receive a check in the spring that can be used on any safety items or equipment they feel is appropriate for their school population. However, we have identified six items we highly recommend to all organizations to prevent accidents related to slips, trips, and falls.
- Anti-Slip Coating for Bus Steps
- Floor Dryers
- Floor Mats
- Non-Slip Stair Treads
- Sidewalk Salt/Shovels
- Wet Floor Signs
We encourage you to utilize these funds for items that increase all types of safety and security measures in your district.
