  • The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Laboratory Directors' Environmental and Occupational/Public Health Standards Steering Group (or ''SSG'') was formed in 1990. It was felt then that ''risk'' could be an organizing principle for environmental cleanup and that risk-based cleanup standards could rationalize clean up work. The environmental remediation process puts workers engaged in cleanup activities at risk from hazardous materials and from the more usual hazards associated with construction activities. In a real sense, the site remediation process involves the transfer of a hypothetical risk to the environment and the public from isolated contamination into real risks to the workersmore » engaged in the remediation activities. Late in its existence the SSG, primarily motivated by its LANL representative, Dr. Harry Ettinger, actively investigated issues associated with worker health and safety during environmental remediation activities. This paper summarizes the insights noted by the SSG. Most continue to be pertinent today.« less
  • The purpose was to explore various ways of assessing what is known and unknown about health effects of airborne, organic combustion products, and of developing quantitative estimates of such effects, with associated uncertainties. Many US Department of Energy Health and Environmental Assessment Programs (HERAP) projects have made initial assessments of the health effects of organic compounds for their own technologies; the workshop provided an opportunity to share methods and ideas. Health-effects estimates depend on estimates of sources, atmospheric transport, transformation and dispersion, population exposure, dose, and response. Uncertainties in each step are compounded in estimates of health damage. Transport, populationmore » exposure, and exposure-response relationships were emphasized. Presentations have been entered individually into the data base. (ACR)« less
  • This review concentrates primarily on the U.S. Public Health Service`s radiological health programs that are related to the use of radium in medicine. The history of program development is given, with a focus on legal and regulatory aspects. Federal and state cooperative actions are outlined, including congressional radium hearings, National Advisory Committee on Radiation, and Federal Radiation Council rulings. Problems associated with the medical use of radium, such as contamination and disposal, are also described. 30 refs.
  • Inner-city high school students are disproportionately affected by health problems that stem from environmental conditions. Also, they are not adequately prepared in Science -- especially in the concepts, methods, and procedures of environmental-health science research -- and are generally unaware of the career opportunities in this field. A Superfund program was developed to increase Science literacy and expand career knowledge in environmental health among a cohort of minority high school students from New York City. The year-round program features lectures, laboratory tours, seminars, investigations, and research taught by faculty and Superfund investigators at Mount Sinai`s Environmental Health Sciences Center. Themore » students made remarkable progress in terms of gaining environmental health knowledge, laboratory and scientific research skills, and awareness of environmental health careers.« less
