Loss Prevention Incentive

The goal of the Loss Prevention Incentive Program is to increase safety, promote wellness, and decrease on-the-job injuries by implementing consistent prevention strategies.  All districts are encouraged to participate; however it is not mandatory. 

COVID-19 Update (as of April 24, 2020):

At an Executive Board meeting, your representatives implemented the following changes to the published requirements and timelines:

a. Districts will be able to roll over unspent funds this year and will not lose them on June 30th

b. Districts will be given extra time to complete the Loss Prevention Incentive tasks for the 2019-2020 LPI year. The new deadline is October 31, 2020 instead of June 30, 2020.

c. Tasks completed between today and October 31, 2020 will count for BOTH the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 LPI year.

Although you do not have to spend the LPI you earned during the 2018/19 year, you are still encouraged to do so if you can.

Additionally, if you are able to submit the 2019/20 checklist before June 30, you will be able to spend the money starting on July 1st.  

 

In order to earn Safety Incentive Dollars member districts must earn 200 points by choosing from a variety of activities during the course of the plan year. Points values vary, and are listed on the program description. Activities include:

Safety incentives are paid to each qualifying district at the end of the plan year in the form of a reimbursement account that can be used to purchase safety and wellness related items.  This will promote a culture emphasizing safety and allows districts to secure products that would not be possible under current budget restraints. Safe employees are happy employees!
