Texas Mutual Awards $300K in Safety Education Grants

AUSTIN, Texas— Texas Mutual Insurance Company has awarded a combined $300,000 in grants to Kilgore College, Midland College and College of the Mainland in Texas City. The grants will fund free workplace safety courses for employers, employees and the general public.

Texas Mutual has awarded more than $1 million in safety education grants since 1999.

“Texas Mutual has been very generous, and the benefit to Midland and surrounding communities is tremendous,” said Midland College President Steve Thomas, Ph.D. “Each person who has participated in the program made possible by this partnership between Texas Mutual and Midland College has used the free classes to learn how to make their workplaces safer.”

In addition to the safety grants, Texas Mutual hosts free workers’ compensation workshops across the state. The workshops include a presentation by a Texas Mutual safety professional.

The grants and workshops are part of the company’s ongoing commitment to preventing workplace accidents.

“On-the-job injuries carry monetary and, more importantly, human costs,” said Ron Wright, Texas Mutual Insurance Company president. “As the state’s leading provider of workers’ compensation insurance, we take seriously our responsibility to promote safe workplaces. Anytime we have the opportunity to help prevent accidents in the workplace through training and education, we consider it a sound investment.”
