Grant Number R43ES030580
Funding Organization National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
Award Funding Period 20 Sep 2019 to 31 Aug 2021
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): ABSTRACT Flooding events continue to increase in both frequency and intensity. Workers involved in post-flood reconstruction work are at increased risk of adverse health effects due to respiratory exposures and other hazards. Proposed e-learning platform ’Pocket Ark’ provides training before flooding occurs, real-time decision support during a clean-up, and communications capabilities during and after cleanup to the workers involved. It addresses an important public health problem and uses a novel app-based e-learning platform to improve and enhance the cognitive understanding of flood-related health hazards within this vulnerable working population.
