Medical Screening DOE

During the WWII Manhattan Project, in the Cold War that followed, and in ongoing operations and environmental remediation, several hundred thousand construction workers worked on sites of the U.S. Department of Energy and its predecessors. Many of these workers faced excessive and uncontrolled exposures to ionizing radiation, airborne radioactive dusts, crystalline silica, and other health hazards. Ongoing medical surveillance serves both to aid these workers and to improve our understanding of occupational injury and disease in these operations.
