The mission of the FOHS's “Worldwide Outreach Program” is to support the professional development of occupational health and safety with emphasis on primary prevention in Occupational Hygiene.
The goal of this Program is to provide cooperative financial and technical support to enhance organizations emphasizing occupational hygiene training and education.
FOHS announces a calendar year 2010 grant, total value up to US $2,000. It is recommended that individual proposals be in the US $1,000 – $2,000 range. This is not a monetary award but must identify specific educational or research materials needed to support a program. One identified and fundable objective is to provide packages of published materials that would enhance an organization’s library.
