Limited submission program-only one application is permitted. Therefore a university-wide internal selection process is required. This is to determine the applicant to represent Stanford for the January 31, 2020 deadline.

The purpose of this NOFO is to enhance the quality and complement the availability of health and safety training for mineworkers in the Western United States. As a result, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) invites applications for cooperative agreements to support the development and implementation of training and education programs.

 Eligibility

Independent investigators- Stanford faculty with PI eligibility and CE faculty (with an approved CE faculty PI waiver).

Not eligible: Instructors, Clinical Instructors, Academic staff-researchers (i.e., basic scientists, research associates) are not eligible because Stanford does not consider them to be independent or faculty-level positions.

 Purpose and Award Details

The purpose of this NOFO is to enhance the quality and complement the availability of health and safety training for miners in the Western United States. Availability includes the frequency, geographic considerations, channels or partners of dissemination, culturally and/or educational appropriate training material, and other characteristics of a successful training program.
 
NIOSH invites applications that support the development and implementation of training and education programs with objectives that:
  • address the training needs of mining personnel in the Western United States,
  • develop and deliver health and safety training to miners (NOTE: this excludes training in emergency response and hazmat materials),
  • develop/offer and implement “train the trainer” courses,
  • provide qualified instructors and faculty to conduct the training, and increase the number of trainers,
  • evaluate the effectiveness and impact of the training program on reducing injuries and illnesses to miners, and
  • coordinate with existing training programs and partnerships with industry, miners, and agencies, such as those offered by MSHA.

 

NIOSH intends that the training provided by this program will be consistent with recommendations and guidelines of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and MSHA, and that the training provided will not duplicate existing MSHA or OSHA training programs, or those developed by current NIOSH grantees. Applications duplicating training provided by MSHA or OSHA training programs, or those developed by current NIOSH grantees will be found non-responsive.
