Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory maintains an active Beryllium Safety Program to minimize potential exposure to beryllium particles. This program consists of hazard assessment, workplace evaluation, appropriate control measures for areas where potential exposures to beryllium particles (such as dusts, mists or welding fumes) can occur, as well as, training and medical surveillance for potentially exposed individuals. Berkeley National Laboratory’s Chronic Beryllium Disease Prevention Program (CBDPP) summarizes all efforts to minimize and reduce beryllium exposure on-site to the greatest extent possible.
If you wish to learn more about the Beryllium Safety Program or if you are concerned about your potential exposure to beryllium, please contact us.
