WR Grace is an AWE facility for 1958-March 1, 2011 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.

WR Grace has a Special Exposure Cohort which covers all workers in specific areas with specific cancers and at least 250 days of employment for January 1, 1958 through December 31, 1970.

The Davison Chemical Division of W.R. Grace Co. (later Nuclear Fuel Services) processed unirradiated uranium scrap for the AEC, recovering enriched uranium from it for use in the nuclear weapons complex. Correspondence from 1963 also indicates that the company also worked with thorium, which was associated with their work for the civilian nuclear reactor industry and the naval reactors program.

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.
