The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) has awarded 20 Consultation Education and Training (CET) grants totaling $620,000 to promote worker safety and health across the state, particularly for small and medium sized companies.

The awarded projects include a wide range of training activities and proficiency levels, including: safety and health training in healthcare, manufacturing and construction; workplace violence prevention and more.

One of the grants is headed to northeast Michigan. Alpena Community College will use its grant to provide safety and health training throughout Northeast Michigan in the healthcare, construction and manufacturing industries.  For more information on those opportunities contact Dawn Stone at 989-358-7293.

Officials say the CET grants have a strong track record of increasing safety awareness in the workplace.  The fiscal year 2019 grants continue MIOSHA’s commitment to enhancing safety and health training and work practices resulting in fewer injuries, illnesses and fatalities on the job.
