How to Save Premium Dollars

How to Save Premium Dollars

Employee Training

APEI offers many opportunities for our members to save money. One of the easiest ways is to utilize the Safety Equipment and Training Grant. APEI will reimburse up to $1,000 for purchases that are applied towards safety training or equipment, including personal protective equipment. Our members get very creative in the equipment they purchase. The Yaktrax and GripOns traction cleats seem to be the most frequently used item for the grant. They provide greater stability for winter walking and reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls.      Investment in safety equipment and training also helps raise awareness of the importance of safety and its value to your employees.

For more information on APEI’s Safety Equipment and Training Grant, check your loss control manual or contact Cole Cummins, your loss control manager, at ccummins@akpei.com.

Portable Fire Extinguishers

As of November 2012, the State of Alaska no longer issues Class I permits through the Division of Fire and Life Safety. Class I permits allow you to conduct inspections and non-invasive annual maintenance of portable fire extinguishers. The permit allows such things as weighing the unit, making sure the internal powder has not settled, inspecting tags, seals, hoses, and locking items. 

The State of Alaska says "It is the responsibility of the employer to provide training and documentation to enable the employer's personnel to conduct a Class I inspection and non-invasive maintenance of portable fire extinguishers." 

APEI is now offering a free Class I Fire Extinguisher Training Program for all members. This training program allows your employees to conduct annual non-invasive fire extinguisher inspections. It also gives you explanations of multiple OSHA requirements and NFPA standards.  

Training your employees on conducting annual fire extinguisher inspections saves you money. The average cost for an extinguisher servicing company to conduct an annual inspection is $8 per extinguisher, which can add up fast. For some of our remote members, having to pay for a service company's travel costs can be very expensive.   

For more information on APEI's Fire Extinguisher Training Program, contact Cole Cummins, your loss control manager, at ccummins@akpei.com
