§72-63.10a. Department of Veterans Affairs on-the-job employee safety program.
It is the intent of the Legislature that the promotion of safety in the workplace is a legitimate public purpose. In order to establish a public employee benefit program to encourage safety in the workplace, the Department of Veterans Affairs is hereby directed to establish an on-the-job employee safety program which encourages work unit safety and reduces lost productivity and compensation costs. In order to promote job safety in work units and provide recognition for work units with exceptional safety records, the Department of Veterans Affairs is authorized to expend from monies available in the State Department of Veterans Affairs Revolving Fund so much thereof as may be necessary to provide incentive awards for safety-related job performance. However, no employee shall be recognized more than once per calendar year, and the award shall not exceed the value of One Hundred Dollars ($100.00).
