SBIR E-LEARNING FOR HAZMAT AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE
National Institutes of Health, NIEHS, Funding Opportunity RFA-ES-19-009, 2019

The major objective of the NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP) is to prevent work-related harm by assisting in the training of workers in how best to protect themselves and their communities from exposure to hazardous materials. NIEHS seeks Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant applications from small business concerns that propose to further the development of (1) Advanced Technology Training (ATT) tools to assist in research into the acute and long-term health effects of environmental disasters and (2) products for the health and safety training of HAZMAT workers; waste treatment personnel; skilled support personnel associated with an emergency/disaster; emergency responders in biosafety response, infectious disease training, and cleanup; and emergency responders in disasters and resiliency training. ATT includes online training, virtual reality, and serious gaming that complement all aspects of training from development to evaluation. These products must complement the goals and objectives of the WTP [more information at http://www.niehs.nih.gov/careers/hazmat/about_wetp/]. The closing date for applications is July 31, 2019. https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=315372
