ATLANTA (AP) _ Officials from the U.S. Department of Labor say two Georgia organizations will receive worker training grant funding from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Officials say the University of Georgia and the Georgia Tech Applied Research Corp. are being given about $214,000 in funding through the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program.

The schools are part of 78 groups being given more than $10.6 million in funding to help train employees to recognize workplace safety and health hazards.

Officials say the training program supports safety and health training programs to educate workers and employers in industries with high injury, illness and fatality rates.
