Texas Mutual Gives $100K Grant to Kilgore College.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas Mutual Insurance Company announced a $100,000 grant to Kilgore College in Kilgore, Texas today. The grant will fund free health and safety courses through the college's KC Risk Management Institute.

The institute is a division of the KC Workforce Development Program, which offers custom workforce training programs for East Texas employers.

"Many companies in the area have had to cut more and more safety courses out of their budgets," said Martha Woodruff, director of KC Workforce Development. "We are just thrilled to get this grant to offer free, high-quality employee training to help businesses keep their workers safe."

Texas Mutual employees who are certified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will teach the courses. The courses will focus on industry-wide safety topics, as well as topics designed around the oil and gas industry. For more information, contact Ben Cammack, Kilgore College training coordinator, at 903-983-8290 or bcammack@kilgore.edu.

Texas Mutual Insurance Company has given similar grants to Midland College and College of the Mainland in Texas City. The company also offers free workers' comp workshops across the state. The workshops include a presentation by a Texas Mutual loss prevention consultant. The grants and workshops are part of the company's ongoing initiative to prevent workplace accidents.

"On-the-job injuries carry monetary and, most importantly, human costs," said Russ Oliver, Texas Mutual Insurance Company president. "As the state's leading provider of workers' comp insurance, it is our responsibility to promote safe workplaces. Any time we have the opportunity to get that message to Texas employers, we consider it money well spent."
