BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (5/14/13) – The City of Bowling Green has been awarded a $2,748.30 reimbursement safety grant by the Kentucky League of Cities Insurance Services. The KLCIS provides a number of programs and services to help increase public safety. The intended use of the grant is for the City's Hearing Conservation program testing and training.
David Weisbrodt, Safety and Risk Manager, said in a press release "We use every opportunity to make our City safe. In these uncertain times, grants such as this one are a practical way to make the City's budget go further as well as provide care and equipment that will enhance employee and public safety.”"
Bowling Green's Hearing Conservation program requires all employees exposed to occupational noise to have annual audiometric testing and receive training to understand the effects noise can have on hearing, the purpose of hearing protection and the use of such devices.
The grant will also provide funds to send three employees to the Kentucky Municipal Environmental Safety & Health Association annual conference. This conference is $195 per employee and 50% of the cost will be covered with the grant.
