National Supplemental Screening Program

The National Supplemental Screening Program (NSSP) provides free customized medical screenings to former Department of Energy workers who may have been exposed to hazardous substances on the job site. The screenings are designed to identify occupational diseases such as chronic respiratory illnesses, hearing loss, kidney or liver disease, and some forms of cancer.

The NSSP collects data to help identify if former workers have developed any health conditions related to workplace exposures, as well as any health conditions that arise as these workers age.

ORAU, along with its partners—along with its partners National Jewish Health, Acuity International, Cority Software, and the Center for Health, Work & Environment at the Colorado School of Public Health—manages this program by:

  • Leveraging a nationwide network of clinics to provide medical evaluations to DOE former workers, regardless of where they are living today
  • Providing a secure paperless system for transferring patient information among the partners
  • Using leading occupational medicine groups to design the exams, to review all findings, and to prepare the results letter for each participant
