Texas Mutual Launches Free e-Learning Tool
Texas Mutual Insurance Company, the state’s leading provider of workers’ compensation insurance, recently launched a free workplace safety training tool for policyholders called e-Learning.
e-Learning gives business owners access to a library of more than 200 modern, video-based training courses on a variety of workplace safety topics, such as ladder safety, hazard communication, fall prevention and more. Employers can easily assign courses, which workers complete through the learner portal. Not only do these courses provide valuable training that could prevent workplace accidents, but the tool is offered free to all Texas Mutual policyholders. This is a departure from the typical business model of providers selling similar tools to employers.
While Texas Mutual has long offered a variety of safety training resources, the e-Learning video course model fills a need for modern, engaging and easily understood material.
e-Learning also allows employers to access reports and maintain safety training records for OSHA-related purposes and their own recordkeeping needs.

In a separate announcement, Texas Mutual announced that it broke ground recently on its new four-story, 270,000 square-foot headquarters building in the Mueller community’s Aldrich Street District.
Catellus Development will manage construction of the building, which will be owned by Texas Mutual. The building will be fully occupied by Texas Mutual, with the exception of approximately 20,000 square feet of first-floor retail space. Move in is anticipated for mid-2018, weather permitting.
The contemporary-designed building from Studio8 Architects will feature built-in space for employees who telework, as well as abundant natural light and ample shading elements, including a planned covered deck on the top floor with unobstructed views of downtown Austin.
