Texas Mutual awards $1 million in safety education grants
Since 1999, Texas Mutual has been partnering with colleges across the state to help them provide safety education to their communities. This year, we distributed $1 million in grants to 10 Texas colleges offering free or discounted workplace safety and health courses to local businesses and their employees.
These Texas Mutual grants support risk management programs at:
- Amarillo College
- Angelina College in Lufkin
- College of the Mainland in Texas City
- Del Mar College in Corpus Christi
- El Paso Community College
- Kilgore College
- Lamar Institute of Technology in Beaumont
- Midland College
- Odessa College
- Texarkana College
Texas Mutual also supports the Risk Management Institute at Lee College in Baytown.
Courses offered at these institutes include Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) outreach courses, CPR & first-aid and fall protection. The colleges also provide courses tailored to the primary industries in their communities such as Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations and crane operator training.
Over a 24-year period, we’ve awarded $12 million in safety education grants to our college partners, and more than 52,000 students have attended free or discounted safety training. At Texas Mutual, we know a safe workforce begins with training and we’re proud to support colleges across the state that are helping their communities be stronger and safer at work.
