Grant Program Targets Loss Prevention

Eastland – Eastland ISD has been awarded a loss prevention grant of $3000 from the TASB Risk Management Fund. Grant monies will help implement loss prevention and safety initiatives to reduce the potential for property losses and on-the-job injuries and raise safety awareness. “The safety and well being of all employees and prevention of losses are crucial issues in the workplace. The Fund is dedicated to partnering with its members to save valuable resources and do everything we can to help educate staff to provide for a healthier work force and create a safer work environment,” said Edwin Thompson, director of TASB Loss Prevention Services.

“Member response to the grant program has grown steadily over the years and applicants did an exceptional job of analyzing their hazardous exposures, loss prevention needs, and developing loss prevention initiatives to mitigate their impact on district resources,” Thompson said. “Almost two months were needed to evaluate and select grant recipients and the process was extremely challenging given the wealth of well-justified applications submitted,” he said.

Receiving the award from TASB representative Mr. Dell Harrington is Superintendent of Eastland ISD schools, Donald W. Hughes.
