Evaluation of ESOH Related Mission Risks

The Beryllium Health and Safety Committee (BHSC) is committed to preventing beryllium sensitization and Chronic Beryllium Disease (CBD) and other adverse health effects that can be caused by workplace exposure to beryllium.  The BHSC is primarily comprised of occupational health, analytical, and operations personnel involved with beryllium processing issues for primarily the Department of Energy, Department of Defense and the Atomic Weapons complexes in the US and UK.
