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.

We developed a 15 minute video to educate energy workers, their survivors, and authorized representatives about dose reconstruction and the overall dose reconstruction program. It provides answers to the most frequently asked questions that we receive from claimants, as well as general information about the claims process.
The video is intended to provide a basic understanding of this complex, scientific program to those who have a claim undergoing dose reconstruction. After watching the video, we hope the audience has a better understanding of dose reconstruction and the dose reconstruction process, and recognizes that the NIOSH dose reconstruction program is grounded in sound, scientific methods that give the benefit of the doubt to the worker whenever possible.
The glossary contains a collection of terms commonly used in reference to the NIOSH dose reconstruction program and The Act.
The July 2008 edition of the Health Physics: The Radiation Safety Journal is devoted to an in-depth examination of the science behind the NIOSH Radiation Dose Reconstruction Program. The Journal features 15 papers which highlight different aspects of the program.
