Electronic Records System
The Electronic Records System (ERS) preserves data on employee health and radiation exposure dating from the dawn of the nuclear age. The records include data related to occupational medicine, industrial hygiene, and radiation exposure and were collected by officials in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), and contractor personnel,
The records are used for official governmental purposes to evaluate employee benefits, health screening and tracking, and legal adjudication. Use of ERS e-records is maintained within a cyber-secure environment, with documents accessible only by officials with appropriate clearance.
The DOE and NNSA has sponsored the program, with nearly $30 million being invested in the system’s development under a UNLV research team.
