From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — The Indiana Public Employers’ Plan Inc. announced the City of Huntingburg as a recipient of its 2020 safety grant award.

IPEP is partner with the city’s Safety Risk Management Director Travis Gentry and Brad Boling of Schmutzler Agency to maximize opportunities to promote a safe work environment and assist with stretching the city’s 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.

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. IPEP has grown to provide workers’ compensation claims administration for more than 700 public entities including cities, towns, counties and schools.
