MIOSHA and Macomb Community College have partnered on the MTI since 2007. This year’s ceremony recognized 30 graduates of the program. To date, 28,769 people have participated in MTI training.
“The MTI is a hands-on, interactive opportunity to equip employees with robust skills and strategies to enhance workplace safety and health,” said Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Director Orlene Hawks. “MTI is a great investment for employers as it helps create a safe and healthy work environment by engaging employees with a training curriculum that enhances the overall culture of safety.”
The MTI delivers affordable, participant-driven and informative seminars based on the most up-to-date industry standards. Students attend a series of courses that will help them develop the knowledge and skills to improve their companies’ safety and health system.
