LCCC RECEIVES GRANT TO CREATE STUDENT RESEARCH PANEL ON STEEL SAFETY

Lorain County Community College students will soon play a key role in solving some pressing health and safety problems in the steel industry.

LCCC was awarded a grant from the Don B. Daily Memorial Fund to Promote Steel Industry Safety and Health. The $5,000 grant will fund the creation and operation of a student research team that will investigate solutions for steel industry health and safety problems.

“We are excited to have LCCC students actively engaged in occupational safety issues,” said Kelly Zelesnik, dean of engineering technologies at LCCC. “This program will put our students at the forefront of safety developments within the steel industry.”

The student research team will work with representatives from the steel industry to explore practices and requirements for occupational safety training. The goals of the program are to increase the availability of training to current steel workers and to increase the number of LCCC students who explore occupational safety as part of their academic studies.

Three students will be selected for the team and begin work during fall semester. In spring 2013, the group will present their findings at the LCCC Research Day and at least one other professional conference.
