APEI offers many opportunities for our members to save money and reduce risk. One of the easiest ways is to utilize the Safety Equipment and Training Grant. APEI will reimburse up to $1,000 for purchases that are applied towards safety training or equipment, including personal protective equipment. Our members have been very creative in the equipment they purchase. Yaktrax and Ice Trekkers traction cleats have been some of the most frequent items purchased using the grant. Traction cleats provide greater stability for winter walking and reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls-and preventing some of the most common workplace injuries. Another item that more employers are purchasing through the safety grant is high-visibility clothing. This is a great tool for keeping your employees safe by making them visible to everyone around them. Investment in safety equipment and training also helps raise awareness of the importance of safety and its value to your employees.
