MMA Awards Bath Housing Safety Funds

Bath Housing is pleased to announce it has been awarded a Safety Grant by the Maine Municipal Association Workers Compensation Fund in the amount of $3,000.00 for safety efforts in 2023.  MMA has been a significant part of Bath Housing’s safety enhancements since 2018.

The Ed MacDonald Safety Grants and Scholarship provide financial assistance to members of the MMA Workers Compensation Fund to purchase safety equipment or services to assist in reducing the frequency and severity of workplace injuries. The grant programs are designed to prevent injuries and improve workplace safety for our Maine employees. The reduction in employee injuries also benefits the taxpayers by lessening lost hours at work, cost of claims and potential overtime expenses for employees who might have to fill in for injured co-workers.

The Maine Municipal Association has been awarding Safety Grants to members of the Workers’ Compensation fund since 1999. The Ed MacDonald Safety Grants and Scholarships are an example of a successful partnership that has been preventing workplace injuries by bestowing more than $6.2 million in the funding of 4,545 Safety Grants and 542 Scholarship. Together we are building safe communities.
