Worker Outreach Activities

Based on a recommendation from the Advisory Board to provide workers and site experts with opportunities to participate in developing the technical documents used in dose reconstruction, NIOSH established a Worker Outreach Program.

At Worker Outreach Meetings, current and former DOE and AWE employees have opportunities to obtain information about Site Profiles, Technical Basis Documents, and Technical Information Bulletins, and to provide information for consideration and possible use in dose reconstruction. This process is valuable to ensure that the technical documents used in dose reconstruction contain correct and useful information.

Below are the Worker Outreach Activities for TIBs:

At the current time, no worker outreach activities specific to any TIB have been scheduled.

Worker Outreach meeting information for a specific work site and the minutes from the meetings can be found on the individual site pages. To view all information for a specific work site for which OCAS has developed information, please visit our List of Work Sites page. The information found on the individual work sites pages can include: technical documents (site profiles, technical basis documents, technical information bulletins), worker outreach information and final minutes, Special Exposure Cohort information, and public comments.

Advisory Board on Radiation and Worker Health Comments on TIBs

The Advisory Board conducts reviews of various NIOSH Technical Information Bulletins (TIBs) used in dose reconstruction. The Board's technical support contractor assists in the review process. The purpose of the reviews is to assess the scientific and technical quality of the dose reconstruction process and methods outlined in the TIB. These reviews can be found on the Advisory Board: Reports from the Technical Support Contractor page of our Web site.

When the reviews are complete and all issues have been resolved, the Board prepares a brief summary of the resolutions. The summaries help the public understand the results of the technical reviews. These summaries can be found on the Advisory Board: Technical Review Summaries from the Technical Support Contractor page.

Allows for expansion to other facility types; includes estimate of industrial source exposures based on analyses of 1960-1980 commercial doses; deletes applicability (at this time) to U-recovery with phosphoric acid; adds type S assumption; used activity rather than mass air concentrations for calculations; uses different specific activity assumption for consistency with IMBA; uses OCAS-TIB-009 ingestion scenario; adds consideration of urinalysis; adds RU and EU assumptions; updates MCNP ingot doses; modifies ingot external dose assumptions; modifies external dose contamination calculation by accounting for isotopic fractions to consider effect of EU; removes external organ doses, but provides separate analyses (concern from Task 5 that reconstruction methods subject to their program should not be in site profile - the line is still blurry); added nonpenetrating dose assumptions; added photofluorography assumption prior to 1962. Corrected Table 3-8, first row to acute. Addressed OCAS comments: explicitly stated exception to default radiography doses could be made on a case-by-case basis, limited Appendix A industrial exposures to covered periods, and changed Appendix A industrial dose estimates back to linear (versus exponential) fit of data.
