New York Insurer Targets Worker-SafetyTraining Programs

July 16, 2009

The New York State Insurance Fund is reaching out to winners of federal, youth-training grants by offering free workplace safety services to those organizations.

Ten organizations in the state — including United Way and Urban League affiliates — are receiving YouthBuild grants from the Department of Labor. The YouthBuild program helps out-of-school youth to obtain their diplomas or GEDs while providing occupational training in the construction industry.

The training is free to organizations that have workers’ comp policies through NYSIF, a state-chartered group that is the largest workers’ comp writer in New York.
