Building Public Confidence in the Management of Health Issues and Environmental Cleanup Initiatives

Our customers place great importance on ensuring that all research, production, or other activities at their facilities are performed in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.

Sometimes, however, workers have occupational-related health issues or on-the-job exposures to radiation or other hazardous substances, or sites and facilities that are contaminated must be adequately cleaned up.

ORAU is providing fast and reliable health surveillance systems to measure and analyze these health issues to help mitigate their causes and effects. We develop communication strategies to educate the public about serious diseases and health threats.

In addition, we’re providing independent environmental assessments of cleanup activities to help ensure these buildings and lands can be safely released for government, commercial, or public use.

Some of ORAU’s capabilities and programs in these areas include:
