Abstract
The focus of this study is on Remediation Workers at the United States Department of Energy’s (DOE) Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site (RFETS) with regard to past, present and proposed future worker group activities, exposures, demographics and technologies. Unlike most previous DOE related epidemiological studies which have focused on historical worker exposure data, this study addresses historic (July 1989 to present), present (November 1996 - November 1997) and proposed (November 1997 and beyond) Remediation Worker group exposure data. 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 ten years or less. These worker groups, which might encounter hazards that their 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. During the course of this study the partnership agreement between the DOE and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), as described in the December 24, 1990 (renewed in 1996) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between these two agencies, has been tested in terms of gathering the necessary worker group data for this study.
