Introduction

In 1979, OCAW requested a study of the health effects from occupational exposures at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PORTS).A cohort study revealed statistically non-significant elevated SMRs . In 2001, NIOSH was asked by DoE to conduct studies at the Paducah plant.

The Universities of Louisville, Kentucky, and Cincinnati commenced a NIOSH-funded study of the workforce through 2003.
