Safety award Safety award

Pam Bennett Martin talks with Corydon town manager Scott Flickner, left, and town council president Lester (Les) Rhoads about the 2021 safety grant award the town received through the Indiana Public Employers’ Plan Inc. The IPEP partnered with Corydon Clerk-Treasurer Treggie King, among others, along with Martin of Bennett & Bennett Insurance, to maximize opportunities to promote a safe work environment and assist with stretching their risk management resources. The grant funds will be used to purchase safety equipment or safety training programs that will reduce or limit workers compensation exposure. The IPEP was created in 1989 as a risk-sharing pool for public entities as a response to the need for public employers to find affordable workers’ compensation coverage. It has grown to provide workers’ compensation claims administration for more than 700 public entities, including cities, towns, counties and schools. Photo by Jo Ann Spieth-Saylor
