Abstract The purpose of this document is to assemble information relevant to remediation workers performing Hazardous Waste (HW), Deactivation (De), Dismantlement (Di), and Clean Up (CW) task activities at the DOE Hanford site addressing four primary objectives. The objectives are: identification of remediation workers performing HW, De, Di, and CW task activities anticipated or in progress from the recent past through the next five to 10 years; demographic definition of the workforce performing these activities; identification of the technologies in use of proposed to be used (including considerations regarding health and safety impact upon the workforce); and assembly of summary information for potential chemical, mixed, and radiological contaminant exposures that may be encountered during these processes. The information is drawn predominantly from existing DOE and contractor documents or reports. Other source documents may include those assembled for compliance purposes or to define activities dictated by site Decontamination & Decommissioning, restoration, transition, and cleanup agreements with local, state, and federal authorities or as mandated by DOE. This assembly of information is to support research hypothesis development in the next phase of this project. It will also provide insight and initial data for study feasibility and planning considerations.
