Abstract
This document entitled Remediation Workers Exposure Assessment Feasibility Study (EAFS) at the United States Department of Energy's (DOE) Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL) addresses and identifies historic (November 1989 to June 1998), present (June 1998 -June 1999), and proposed (June 1999 and beyond) remediation worker demographics, available radiological and chemical exposure data, worker activities, and demonstrated/deployed INEEL remediation technologies. In many cases, accelerated clean up schedules are planned for DOE sites across the country with the intention of site remediation within the scope of a ten year period. This worker population, which might encounter hazards that it's predecessors (i,e., production workers) were not exposed to, may vanish upon completion of these tasks. The first phase of this study will address, identify, and summarize documentation regarding this work force for use as a foundation upon which further studies will be built. For the purpose of this study, only workers with "hands-on" or full involvement! participation in site remediation activities will be addressed; no administrative support (i.e., office managers, clerical support, etc.), or security support (i.e. guards) will be included in the defined remediation worker population, Site remediation efforts undertaken prior to November 1989, when INEEL was -not yet included on the National Priorities List (NPL), are not addressed in this study, Workers that utilize buildings or structures which have been "free released" for public or private industry will also not be addressed in this study.
