Baker and Company is an AWE site from 1943-1990 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.

Baker and Company processed radioactive platinum as part of the process of making polonium, which was needed for initiators in nuclear weapons. Baker and Co. also processed unirradiated uranium scrap for the AEC to recover enriched uranium for use in the weapons complex.

During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
