Safety Grant Winners, Cycle 1

January 13, 2017 • Missouri Employers Mutual

The frequency of workers compensation claims continues to decline in Missouri, but Missouri Employers Mutual won’t stop until workplace injuries are eliminated. The Safety Fanatics at MEM awarded the company’s first ever safety grants to Missouri businesses in January 2017 to help them take the next step toward improving workplace safety.

“We know that many businesses—especially those without claims—have a perception that insurance is cutting a check  for premium and never seeing a return,” said Jim Owen, MEM President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re changing that perception by continuing to invest in injury prevention with our policyholders. Money back from MEM is yet another way safety pays. We don’t want funding to stand in the way of saving lives.”

The following businesses were selected to receive safety grants in MEM’s first cycle:

Policyholder City, State Approved Initiative
Association of Group Homes Maryville, MO Hoyer lift
Bridges Community Support Maplewood, MO 1 patient lift, 3 evacuation sleds, 1 lifting kit
