York County Maine Awarded Safety Grant to Purchase Workplace Safety Equipment

Press Release For Immediate Release

Officials for York County Maine Government are pleased to announce that they have been awarded a Safety Grant by the Maine Municipal Association Workers Compensation Fund in the amount of $2,991.00. Detective Kyle A Kassa of the York County Sheriff's Office was notified of the award, which will be used to purchase a Vent Seal, Tourniquet, Quick Cloth and Holder.

The Ed MacDonald Safety Grants and Scholarship provide financial assistance to members of the MMA Workers Compensation Fund to purchase safety equipment or services to assist in reducing the frequency and severity of workplace injuries. The grant programs are designed to prevent injuries and improve workplace safety for our Maine employees. The reduction in employee injuries also benefits the taxpayers by lessening lost hours at work, cost of claims and potential overtime expenses for employees who might have to fill in for injured co-workers.

The Maine Municipal Association has been awarding Safety Grants to members of the Workers’ Compensation fund since 1999. The Ed MacDonald Safety Grants and Scholarships are an example of a successful partnership that has been preventing workplace injuries by bestowing more than $6.2 million in the funding of 4,545 Safety Grants and 542 Scholarship. Together we are building safe communities.
