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.
