Special Exposure Cohort Facilities (by State)

The CDC/NIOSH SEC FAQ describes the Special Exposure Cohort in this way:

The Special Exposure Cohort (SEC) is a uniquely defined category of employees established under The Act. The SEC is comprised of classes of employees who have at least one of the 22 SEC cancers and have worked for a specific period of time at one of the SEC Work Sites

Claims compensated under the SEC do not have to go through the dose reconstruction process, as is required for other cancer claims covered by The Act.

The Act also allows for additional groups of employees (called classes of employees) to be added to the SEC. Classes of employees and work sites can be considered for addition to the SEC through a petition process run by NIOSH.

SEC Rule
