GE X-Ray Division
GE X-Ray Division is an AWE facility for 1956-March 1, 2011 so workers are eligible to file for Part B claims.
General Electric’s X-Ray Division performed research and development work which supported its activities as contractor for the Pinellas Site in Florida. This work included the operation of a small pilot plant in Milwaukee. Sandia National Laboratory managed the GE X-ray division contract as part of the nuclear weapons program. The work in Milwaukee continued until 1966 when these activities were transferred to Pinellas and the staff relocated accordingly.
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.
