Texas Mutual Awards $100K to EPCC’s Risk Management Institute

Texas Mutual Insurance Company is awarding a $100,000 grant to El Paso Community College’s (EPCC) Risk Management Institute, which provides workplace safety courses for community employers, workers and the general public.

Scott Bain, Texas Mutual’s regional manager of safety services, presented the grant on Wednesday, March 7, to the Risk Management Institute.

This is the fourth consecutive year that Texas Mutual, the state’s leading provider of workers’ compensation insurance, has given a $100,000 grant to the college to support the risk management program. The program was established with Texas Mutual’s first donation in 2015.

“Our Risk Management Institute has greatly complemented our job training programs available at EPCC, with a focus on workplace safety,” EPCC President William Serrata, Ph.D., said. “We’re grateful to Texas Mutual for this continued partnership, and our community has embraced the opportunity to make our city, its companies—and their employees—safer.”

Texas Mutual has awarded $6.6 million in safety education grants since 1999. El Paso Community College is one of 10 community colleges in Texas that provides safety classes via funding from Texas Mutual.

EPCC created its Risk Management Institute to offer seminars on workers’ health and safety for employers and employees. A wide range of courses relative to the El Paso area are available through the program, including back safety, ergonomics, fall protection, and OSHA standards, among others.

“Workplace safety education has always been and will continue to be a sound investment, and we are happy to partner with El Paso Community College again to make safety programs a priority in the area,” Bain said. “The courses that will be available to area employees, along with other safety institutes around the state, help workers across Texas be safer and more successful on the job. These grants and the other safety programs from Texas Mutual demonstrate our commitment to ensuring millions of workers get the education they need to work safely.”

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the El Paso Community College (EPCC) – Risk Management Institute have signed an alliance to provide workers, students, and employers in El Paso with information, guidance and access to OSHA training classes.

“Thanks to our Texas Mutual Insurance Corporation partners, and now with our partnership with the OSHA Alliance, the EPCC Risk Management Institute will be able to reach out and offer training to more industrial employees than ever before,” said Barry Bogle, Director of EPCC Law Enforcement Training Academy Security & Special Officers. “By combining our resources and assets. the ability to receive quality safety training will open to nearly everyone in the industries within our region.”

The two-year alliance will expand access to OSHA’s 10- and 30-hour training courses to promote understanding of the workplace safety and health rights and responsibilities of workers and employers in the El Paso metro area.

These rights and responsibilities are detailed in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.

Through its Alliance Program, OSHA works with businesses, trade associations, unions, consulates, professional organizations, faith- and community-based organizations, and educational institutions to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses.
