Workplace Safety

The Foundation's interest in preventing death and serious injury in the workplace stems from the family's company, Industrial Scientific Corporation, which manufactures life-saving gas-monitoring devices. The McElhattan family is deeply committed to ending death on the job by 2050, and we expect the majority of our grant budget will be dedicated to this effort. We are especially interested in innovative safety technology, including virtual and augmented reality.

Please note that we are interested in funding initiatives that advance workplace safety in general, across entire industries. We do not fund applications from individual nonprofits for employee training or installing safety equipment.
