Update on APEI’s Safety Equipment and Training Grant

Author: Cole Cummins/Tuesday, June 27, 2017/Categories: Human Resources Training, Risk Management Training, Newsletters, 2017 Summer

APEI offers many opportunities for our members to save money. One of the easiest ways is to utilize the Safety Equipment and Training Grant. APEI will reimburse members for purchases that are applied towards safety training or equipment, including personal protective equipment.

For the 2017/18 policy year, we are increasing the amount of the safety grant available to our larger members. Members whose APEI  premium is less than $100,000 may continue to receive a reimbursement of up to $1,000. Members with higher premiums may receive larger grant amounts, as shown:


Total Member Premium

Maximum Reimbursement Amount for Safety Grant

Less than $100,000


$100,001 - $399,999


$400,000 - $999,999


$1 million or more


The sky is the limit for what you can use your safety grant on. Our members get very creative in the equipment they purchase. Ice cleats seem to be the most frequently used item for the grant. They provide greater stability for winter walking and reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls. Other members have purchased ergonomic desks, AED machines, fire extinguishers, and high visibility clothing. Investment in safety equipment and training helps raise awareness of the importance of safety and its value to your employees.
