April 20, 2017 -- The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and Toshiba Medical are taking applications for the Safety First grant program.

The program awards two ASRT members a grant of up to $7,000 each for the implementation of a radiologic technology safety program or creative idea aimed at improving technologist safety, the ASRT and Toshiba said.

Last year, winners used grant funds to purchase a lifting device for a Hartford, CT, hospital, and walkers and wheelchairs made of nonmagnetic materials for use in an MR suite in a hospital in Boca Raton, FL.

Eligible facilities are encouraged to apply by completing an application. The deadline is June 30, 2017.
