This paper provides an overview of the Worker Protection System (WPS) at the Argonne National Laboratory, a client/server, Windows-based database management system for management of essential radiological protection and industrial hygiene information. Seven operational modules handle records for external dosimetry, bioassay/internal dosimetry, sealed sources, routine radiological surveys, lasers, workplace exposure, and respirators. WPS utilizes the latest hardware and software technologies to provide ready electronic access to a consolidated source of worker protection data.
