The Village of Utica used funds from a Lean on LARM Safety Grant to purchase a Multi-Gas Detector. Dale Kaliff, Village Maintenance Supervisor, said that the use of a gas detector is critical for city workers.
“It only takes five seconds to die from breathing a poisonous gas. A detector monitors the amount of carbon monoxide and oxygen in an area and alerts the worker as to a danger of entering the space,” Kaliff said.
The Nebraska League Association of Risk Management (LARM) is an insurance pool made up of 163 Nebraska governmental entities. It awards the Lean on LARM Safety Grant to member committees that submit applications for items that will increase safety in their communities.
