The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) has awarded $870,000 in training grants to 20 nonprofit organizations.

The Consultation Education and Training grants are awarded annually for the development and implementation of safety and health training and services, specifically to help support small and medium-sized business.

One of the grants, for $45,000 has been awarded to Alpena Community College, which will use the money to provide safety and health training throughout Northeast Michigan in the healthcare, construction, manufacturing, forestry, and logging industries.

Dawn Stone, Dean of Workforce Development at ACC, told True North Radio Network the funding will support training of workers employed by local companies.

During the fiscal year 2019 grant period, more than 20,000 employees attended training sessions funded by MIOSHA training grants.
