DOD rolls out occupation health data system at Nevada test site

The Defense Department began deployment in the National Nuclear Security
Administration of a Web-based health-information system designed to improve occupational health care services and reduce health threats to military and civilian personnel.

NNSA plans to use the health-information system at its Nevada test site to help meet employee protection requirements and provide a Web-based system for managing industrial hygiene records and replace several disparate databases with an enterprise system. Fielding and training start later this month.

The Defense Occupational and Environmental Health Readiness
System-Industrial Hygiene will support the collection, storage and analysis of information regarding occupational exposures, workplace environmental monitoring, personal protective equipment usage, work practices and employee health-hazard educational data.

DOD awarded the one-year contract in September to Northrop Grumman Corp. to implement the system in NNSA, a semi-autonomous organization within the Energy Department.
