Clifton Products

Clifton Products is a beryllium vendor facility for 1942-1952 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.

In the 1940s Clifton Products, Painesville Ohio, had at least six large contracts with the AEC to supply beryllium products. By 1949, at least 8 beryllium-related deaths had occurred at Clifton.  The time period covered is from 1942 to 1952. Clifton was a very hazardous place to work because of high exposure levels and documented cases of beryllium disease and fatalities. The contracts ended in 1952; however, information on a specific start date was not found. The work was in progress in 1942. It could not be determined if the beryllium activities for the contract work were conducted in separate parts of the facility, away from work for other customers. In 1952, after the contracts were terminated, a beryllium survey was conducted. Exposure levels were significantly lower than during production operations, but beryllium contamination was detected. It was mentioned that beryllium contaminated equipment was being removed from the site.

Clifton was a beryllium vendor so workers are eligible for Part B beryllium claims.
