Workers' compensation insurance carrier SFM awarded Forest Lake School District a $2,500 “Slip, Trip and Fall Grant” to help them address safety issues around the school buildings during the winter season. ABRC’s Risk Management Solutions Manager Brian Plautz discussed the importance of slip-and-fall prevention during a claims review meeting and assisted the district in applying for the grant. The award is designed to match $2,500 of the employer’s investment in winter slip-and-fall efforts.
Forest Lake School District plans to purchase ice cleats for their employees as part of the district’s commitment to injury prevention.
“The ice cleats, along with other equipment and resources designed to prevent winter slip-and-fall injuries, will help send teachers and staff home safe and sound to their families at night,” Plautz said.
Located 30 minutes north of the Twin Cities metro area, the Forest Lake School District serves over 2,000 grade school students in Forest Lake and surrounding communities.
