NLISD Awarded Loss Prevention Grant
North Lamar ISD has been awarded a loss prevention grant of $1000 from the TASB Risk Management Fund. these grants help implement loss prevention and safety initiatives that reduce the potential for property losses and on-the-job injuries, improve emergency management operations and raise awareness of safety issues.
The 2014 grants were awarded to 170 school districts, three regional education service centers, three community colleges and two shared service arrangements.
“This year’s programs was as competitive as ever and selecting grant recipients was difficult because applicants continue to do a great job analyzing their exposures and the best ways to mitigate them,” said Clem Zabalza, director of TASB Loss Prevention Services. He adds, “this program is in its 17th consecutive year because the Fund Board is committed to providing service and resources that put a priority on preventing losses and elevating safety in the workplace.”
The TASB Risk Management Fund is the oldest and largest risk sharing pool serving Texas school district and other members of the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB). The Fund provides workers’ compensation, property, liability, auto and unemployment compensation coverage to more than 1,100 members.
