WESTFIELD RECEIVES IPEP SAFETY GRANT
Westfield, IN- The Indiana Public Employers’ Plan, Inc. (IPEP) is excited to announce the City of Westfield as a recipient of its inaugural safety grant award.
“We at the City of Westfield care very deeply about the safety of our workforce. We are very grateful to IPEP for their assistance in providing funding for this important training and updating of our safety manual. Our employees, and therefore our entire community, will benefit from these improvements,” said Mayor Andy Cook.
IPEP is proud to partner with Westfield to maximize opportunities to promote a safe work environment and assist with stretching risk management resources. The grant funds, in the amount of $3,750 will be used to purchase safety equipment or safety training programs that will reduce or limit workers’ compensation exposure.
IPEP was created in 1989 as a risk-sharing pool for public entities, as a response to the need for public employers to find affordable workers’ compensation coverage. IPEP has grown to provide workers’ compensation claims administration for more than 700 public entities including cities, towns, counties and schools.
