Description:

Ron Rountree discusses his serious health issues relating to his work at Rocky Flats. He worked primarily as a waste inspector, which led to his exposure to a wide variety of hazardous chemicals, often without protection. His health issues were poorly understood for many years, in part because security regulations did not allow him to tell his doctor what chemicals he was working with. He relates his unsuccessful attempts to obtain compensation through the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program. He also offers a critique of the Rocky Flats cleanup.
This interview is part of a series about Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant.
