ATT as defined by the Worker Training Program (WTP) includes, but is not limited to, online training, virtual reality, serious gaming, and tools that complement all aspects of training from development to evaluation including advance technologies that enhance, supplement, improve, and provide health and safety training for hazardous materials workers. These products would complement the goals and objectives of the WTP The major objective of the NIEHS WTP is to prevent work related harm by assisting in the training of workers in how best to protect themselves and their communities from exposure to hazardous materials. The financial support for this initiative comes directly from NIEHS Worker Education and Training Branch SBIR funds.
