Former Worker Medical Screening Program (FWP)

December 19, 2018


The Former Worker Program (FWP) identifies, notifies, and makes medical screening services available, at no cost, to former employees who have worked in the weapons complex during the past 60-plus years for the Department of Energy (DOE) or its predecessor agencies (the Atomic Energy Commission and the Energy Research and Development Administration). DOE uses occupational health experts to independently offer medical screening to former workers for potential adverse health outcomes related to occupational exposures to such conditions as radiation, noise, beryllium, asbestos, lasers, silica, and others. The FWP was first established following the issuance of the Fiscal Year 1993 Defense Authorization Act (Public Law 102-484), which called for DOE to assist workers with determining whether they had health issues related to their prior work with DOE.

Program Requirements:

Workers eligible for this program include all former DOE Federal, contractor, and subcontractor employees from all DOE sites.
