Whistleblowers expose cover up at Hanford Nuclear Site

Document Download

Workers were sick and injured after being exposed to vapors from high-level nuclear waste tanks, beryllium and other toxic and carcinogenic substances. The disclosures are the result of a 14-month investigation in which scores of Hanford whistleblowers worked with the Government Accountability Project (GAP), a national, non-profit good government whistleblower organization and law firm based in Washington, D.C., and Seattle.

Many whistleblowers told GAP of professional misconduct by medical providers, falsification of medical records and callous disregard of workers with physical complaints.
