Congratulations to our 2019 Safety Grant Recipients

Chris Stites, Safety Engineering and Claims Management

April, 2019

TNRMT received safety grant applications from greater than twenty-five percent of the membership this year. Thank you so much for the great response!

We received applications totaling more than $617,000 from over 63 members.

The criteria to receive a grant is that all projects must have a direct impact on employee safety or the reduction of liability exposures. Our goal is to ensure that the funds impact safety from a proactive perspective.

The Risk Management Trust takes safety very seriously. We hope these grants will provide our members an opportunity to continue actively pursuing a strong safety culture. Our primary goal is to reduce and eliminate workplace injuries by improving and providing opportunities for the identification and elimination of risk.

While the TNRMT board approved $63,000 for grants in 2018, in 2019 they were able to approve 24 applications and issue checks for more than $129,000. A few of the grants that were approved include outside lighting, walkway repair, safety PPE items, a trailer to transport trenching shoring equipment, dock lift, TDOT training, training software, and training room upgrades. These grants should have immediate benefit to the well-being of our members and their staff. The following are our 2019 Safety Grant recipients:
