Alpena Community College has been awarded a $45,000 grant that will provide crucial safety training to Northeast Michigan.
The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration Grant will help provide targeted safety training to the five county area.
The money will go towards addressing the occupational safety and health problems that local employers such as NEMROC and DPI face.
According to ACC Director of Student Support Services, Dana LaBar, the grant will focus on providing training to medical and residential care facilities, construction workers, and manufacturing employees.
LaBar says that the grant will help provide another opportunity for ACC to educate the local community.
“This is one way ACC is providing educational opportunities to the community. That is one of our goals. I know most people say, well it’s primarily for college students only, but we hope to work with every agency in the community, and everyone that we can, and the safety grant I would hope provides the training to keep our employees safe. Keep our community a little bit safer.”
If your organization is interested in receiving the safety training provided by the grant, you can contact LaBar at 989–358–7255.
