AUBURN — Bryan Wallace of Lewiston has been named the director of the new MEMIC Center for Workplace Safety based at Central Maine Community College in Auburn. The center, funded by an investment from MEMIC in The Campaign for Maine’s Community Colleges, will train workers and health and safety professionals across the state.

Wallace is a native of Brunswick who earned his bachelor’s degree from Quinnipiac University. He has been employed at CMCC since 2007 as the student services representative for Lincoln and Franklin Counties. He also serves as coach of the men’s soccer team.

The primary goal of the MEMIC Center is to improve workplace safety and help lower workers’ compensation costs for Maine employers. Its programming will be offered in a variety of settings, including online, at the workplace and at the state’s seven community colleges. In addition to offering programming that leads to national health and safety certifications, the center will develop customized courses and programs to meet the needs of individual employers and their workers.
