 Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos New Mexico

 

LANLLos Alamos National Laboratory

 Los Alamos is a DOE site from 1942-the present and workers are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims.

Los Alamos has four Special Exposure Cohorts for certain workers who specific cancers and have at least 250 days employment between March 15, 1943-December 31, 1995, September 1, 1944-July 18, 1963 and March 15, 1943-December 31, 1975.

Operated by the University of California since its inception, Los Alamos National Laboratory designed, developed and tested the world's first nuclear weapons. After World War II, Los Alamos (called the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory) continued as an important nuclear weapons research and development facility. Research programs included nuclear physics, hydrodynamics, chemistry, metallurgy, radiochemistry and life sciences. LANL also used its research facilities to back up other areas of the weapons production complex, particularly plutonium processing and fabrication of weapon components.

Throughout the course of its operations, the potential for beryllium exposure existed at this site, due to beryllium use, residual contamination, and decontamination activities.

Los Alamos National Laboratory is located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque on 28,000 acres.

    Los Alamos has its own website.

    DOL

    DOL provides Part B and Part E statistics on the Los Alamos National Lab as well as exposure information from their Site Exposure Matrix on Los Alamos.

    NIOSH

     NIOSH also reports statistics on Dose Reconstruction claims for Los Alamos.  NIOSH has technical basis documents for the Los Alamos and four Special Exposure Cohort classes have been added.
