Superfund Research Program
In January 2013, the Superfund Research Program put out a request for applications (RFA-ES-13-004) for Occupational Safety Training Education Programs. For a list of the currently funded grantees that were awarded as a result of this request for applications, see the Occupational and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25) page.
The purpose of the SRP Occupational and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies is to provide Higher Education Institutions the opportunity to develop continuing education and academic curricula on the occupational health and safety management practices in the areas of emerging technologies (e.g., emerging hazardous waste products, green chemistry, and sustainable remediation) to industrial hygienists and graduate students involved in the evaluation, management, and handling of hazardous substances. The SRP also expects that such programs will provide a unique training and educational opportunity to those professionals involved in the training of other personnel. Such training would include skills, knowledge, and experience to help prepare other personnel for careers in these new industries. These programs are also meant to expand and complement existing educational and training programs in occupational and safety training and industrial hygiene.
