Beryllium copper alloys and beryllium oxide ceramics are used in the electronic, nuclear and aerospace industries. Beryllium parts for nuclear weapons have been manufactured and used at a number of Department of Energy (DOE) facilities since the 1950s. Workers may have come into contact with beryllium in a number of jobs there over the years.
