Texas Mutual Insurance Co. has awarded a combined $300,000 in grants to Kilgore College, Midland College and College of the Mainland in Texas City near Houston. The grants will continue to fund free workplace safety courses for employers, employees and the general public through the colleges’ risk management institutes.
Since 1999, Texas Mutual has awarded a combined $3.1 million in safety education grants, and more than 20,000 students have attended free safety courses at the three colleges over the past 14 years.
Courses at the safety institutes include general topics, such as ergonomic safety and OSHA standards, but students may also choose to attend courses tailored to the dominant industries in the Houston, Midland and Kilgore areas.
