Compensation 2021 Safety Grant!
The goal of this project and grant is to reduce caregiver injuries for the two categories of slip, trip, falls and back injuries. These are among the most common workplace injuries that we've seen with our caregivers.
As a part of the proposed and approved project, Golden Horizons will be supplying all caregivers with non-slip sneakers, rock salt, and ice cleats in effort to prevent slips, trips, and falls. GHEC will also be acquiring Gait Belts and Back Braces for use by caregivers & clients who may need assistance transferring.
This program will run all of 2021. Golden Horizons has already purchased some of the supplies and is waiting for them to arrive to distribute them to caregivers. This is the first year that Golden Horizons has applied to receive this grant. The Workers' Compensation runs this grant program every year and Golden Horizons hopes to continue to participate and create a more safe environment for caregivers.
