Horizons

Horizons is an AWE facility for 1952-March 1, 2011 so workers are eligible to file for Part B claims.

Horizons has a Special Exposure Cohort for workers who had specific cancers and worked at least 250 days between January 1, 1952-December 31, 1956.

Starting in 1952, Horizons, Inc. was under contract with the AEC for the production of granular thorium metal and conducted some thorium research work for Savannah River. Earlier work performed by Horizons, Inc. for the AEC did not involve radioactive substances.

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.

During the 1940s and 1950s the metal handling facility was used for the production of granular thorium metal for the AEC and conducted some thorium research work for Savannah River. From July 1949 to November 1949, Horizons, Inc. was also under AEC contract to conduct research and perform development work on a process for the preparation of ductile, high-purity zirconium by fused salt electrolysis.
