Safety and Health Management and Training Grants Portfolio
Providing Research Grants for All Mining…
The Alpha Foundation is seeking to award research addressing the root causes of disease, injuries, and fatalities in the mining industry and achieve successful implementation of practical solutions derived from the research effort.
The Foundation is committed to fund projects that explore innovative ideas and concepts, complement existing research efforts and address knowledge or technology gaps in mine safety and health. To this end, cooperative research efforts with mining entities, stakeholder groups and state and federal institutions are encouraged. The Foundation plan is a balanced approach, incorporating a blend of engineering and health science with behavioral science and training, needed to solve mining safety and health problems.
About This Topic
The Foundation recognizes that engineering controls and design interventions alone will not prevent all accidents or the exposure to health risks and disease and is funding efforts to evaluate safety culture and the impact of safety and health management to improve mine safety and health outcomes.
