We are taking steps to continue to modernize and secure our data, applications, and systems. We completed the first phase and restored many of the functions put on pause in May 2021. Now that the first phase is complete, work will resume at a slower pace but will speed up as new systems and applications are brought online. For more information and updates, please visit our Cybersecurity Modernization Initiative web page.
NIOSH Radiation Dose Reconstruction Program
We at NIOSH are honored to pay special tribute to the country’s uranium and nuclear weapons workers on October 30, 2021, which is a National Day of Remembrance for Nuclear Weapons Program Workers. Many of those workers, who were exposed to radiation and toxins, became sick and died because of the work. So, especially on this occasion, we reflect and remember the hard work, ingenuity, dedication, and sacrifices by these special workers who helped make America safer in uncertain times. We thank these workers and the many surviving family members for your service and support in service to the nation. We are honored to support the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 that has and will continue to help these workers and their survivors.
