Non Profit Grants for Safety Equipment

Pennsylvania PA Compensation Lawyer

On November 25, HM Insurance Group provided fifteen non-profit organizations throughout the state of Pennsylvania with grants that would allow those organizations to obtain equipment and workplace additions to improve the safety of workplaces and, consequently, to reduce the number of worker’s compensation claims that come out of these workplaces.

HM Insurance Group is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and protects business and their employees from any financial risks that they might accrue because of health costs. HM Insurance Group provides a portfolio that outlines different health risk solutions for employers and employees. It also provides worker’s compensation and group supplemental health insurance to cover health issues like critical illnesses, accidents, and disability income.

Mike Sullivan, the president and chief operating officer of HM Insurance Group, said that the reason behind the grant creation was because HM is committed to improving workplace safety for employees and to reducing health and safety related financial losses for employers. HM Insurance Group also has a history of giving back to the community, donating to charitable funds like the National Kidney Foundation, Feeding America, and the Fisher House Foundation.

The grant program was developed in 2012 as a way for HM Insurance Group to provide non-profits with a documented safety risk the equipment and workplace accommodations to reduce their safety risk. The grants can be as much as $5000 to implement new safety equipment and accommodations. Some of the improvements that can be implemented include crisis training programs, door lock controls, security equipment, devices to lift patients, new showers in rehabilitation centers, and parking lot repairs, among others.

In Western Pennsylvania, the grant recipients for the HM Insurance Group Worker’s Compensation safety grants were: The ARC of Butler County, the Pauline Auberle Foundation, Beaver County Rehabilitation, Bethlen Communities, the Glade Run Foundation, Green Arc Inc., Life’s Work of Western Pennsylvania, Northern Area Multi Service, and the Partners for Quality Foundation.

In Central Pennsylvania, the recipients were: the Arbutus Park Retirement Community, the Penn Mar Organization, and the United Cerebral Palsy of Camp Hill.

In Eastern Pennsylvania, the recipients were: Millcreek Community Hospital, Supportive Concepts for Families Inc., and the United Disabilities Services

HM Insurance Group hopes that by introducing these new safety measures into these non-profit organizations, it will improve the well-being of the employees and patients and will reduce worker’s compensation claims. Visit http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/1606856 for more information.
