TAC Risk Management Pool

Personal Protective Equipment Safety Kit Program

Employee safety is a priority for the Texas Association of Counties Risk Management Pool (TAC RMP).

During July and August 2017, TAC RMP will distribute Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Safety Kits to members participating in the Workers’ Compensation Program. This equipment is being made available at no cost by approval of the TAC RMP Board.

The kits are intended to supplement members’ existing supply stock used for ongoing employee safety efforts. Kits are being shipped to the county judge’s office unless the office notifies by June 14 that they should be sent to another address.

This is a voluntary program. If the TAC RMP member wishes to decline receiving the PPE Safety Kits, the county judge’s office should notify by June 14.

Kit Contents

Each PPE Safety Kit will be packaged into a drawstring bag and contain:

  • 1 hardhat
  • 2 pairs of work gloves
  • 2 pairs of safety glasses (1 clear and 1 dark)
  • 2 sets of ear plugs
  • 1 high-visibility mesh safety vest

All equipment conforms to standards set by American National Standard Institute (ANSI). 

Number of Kits and Sizes Distributed
The number of PPE Safety Kits distributed will be based on the number of employees the member reported in its 2017 Workers’ Compensation renewal questionnaire for class code 55060 (road employees, paving and repairing).
The sizes provided in the kits are based on these recommendations of the kit provider:

  • 10 percent medium
  • 30 percent large
  • 40 percent extra large
  • 20 percent double-extra large.

Customization of PPE Safety Kits will not be possible due to the large number of kits distributed.
