I found an interesting article.  

Paskus, L. (2003). Cold War workers seek compensation. High Country News35(22), 10.

Reports on the compensation sought by workers at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico who are suffering from illnesses due to the working conditions and work environment at the laboratory. Provisions of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program of the U.S.; Number of claims filed by workers in Los Alamos as of September 2003; Health risks posed by the laboratory to its employees.

This looks like a newspaper article, but it might be a good source to give to a gov docs librarian to see if she can find a government report or more detailed info.

Does anyone know where I could find statistical (not anecdotal) data on illness or injuries related to eating and drinking in laboratories?
