LANSING, Mich. (AP) — State safety regulators say grants worth $870,000 are being awarded to 20 nonprofit groups.

The grants are awarded each year for the development of safety and health training, specifically to help support small and medium-sized business.

The grant program provides options for safety and health education and training to employers and employees. During the 2019 fiscal year grant period, more than 20,000 employees attended training sessions funded by MIOSHA training grants.

Organizations receiving grants include Alpena Community College, the Center for Workplace Violence Prevention, the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association, and Parents for Student Safety Employment Standards.
