May 29, 2019 -- The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Foundation and Canon Medical Systems are accepting applications for the 2019 Safety First grant program.

The initiative, now in its fifth year, is designed to provide two ASRT members with grants of up to $7,000 for the implementation of a radiologic technology safety program or an idea to improve workplace safety measures.

Previously, recipients have used their money for the following:

  • A vertical power lift device for use in a hospital setting
  • Lightweight lead-free aprons that provide more protection than standard lead-based accessories
  • A ferromagnetic detection system for MR safety.

The application deadline is July 31.
