Applications Open for R.T. Safety Grants

Apr. 4, 2017

Safety First LogoSafety FiRsT is designed to help facilities increase technologist and therapist safety in their work environments. The R.T. community strives to deliver patient-centered care, and one way to achieve this is to make it safer for R.T.s to perform their job duties.

Safety FiRsT grants empower R.T.s to improve or implement a radiologic technology safety program at their facility. Two selected applicants will each receive a grant of up to $7,000 to fund a safety initiative. Along with the grant, they will receive a copy of the ASRT institutional course, Safety Essentials, to share with department employees.

Toshiba created this opportunity as part of its 360 Degrees of Safety initiative with a generous donation to the Foundation in 2015. This year marks the third year that Toshiba Medical and the ASRT Foundation have partnered to offer two of these grants to the medical imaging and radiation therapy community. Toshiba’s continued support of this grant is a testament to its dedication to promoting safety in the radiologic science profession.

For details on eligibility, the application process and previously funded projects, visit the Safety FiRsT web page. Applications for the 2017 Toshiba Safety FiRsT grants will be accepted until June 30.
