DOE Site Cleanup

Crane operators, carpenters, welders, laborers, boilermakers, chemical operators, construction workers, electricians, environmental technicians, insulators, laboratory technicians, machinists, painters, pipe fitters, and truck drivers are among the workers engaged in environmental restoration activities at U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear weapons sites. The NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP), in partnership with the DOE Environmental Management Program, supports the development and delivery of site-specific, quality safety and health training to these worker populations, providing them with the skills and knowledge required to recognize and respond to the risks inherent in working at nuclear facilities and with radioactive waste and materials. Visit the NIEHS/DOE Nuclear Worker Training Program page to learn more.

This page provides safety and health training resources for workers engaged in activities related to hazardous materials and waste generation, removal, containment, transportation, and emergency response within the DOE nuclear weapons complex. Please visit our Radiation Exposure and Radiological Dispersion Devices pages for additional resources on radiation, radioactive material and waste handling and disposal, and radiological emergency response.
