FAQs: Probability of Causation (POC)

The Department of Labor (DOL) is responsible for determining the probability that a cancer included in a claim under EEOICPA (The Act) was caused by workers’ exposure to radiation during nuclear weapons production. DOL will determine the “probability of causation” for each claim for which NIOSH is required to complete a dose reconstruction. Generally, with some exceptions, these claims are for workers who are not a member of the Special Exposure Cohort.
