To begin using the Dashboard, click on the link to launch the BAWR Dashboard using a supported web browser.

In order to use the BAWR Dashboard to its full capabilities, a supported web browser is mandatory. The browsers compatible with the BAWR Dashboard are the most recent versions of Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Microsoft Edge.

Links to Government Websites

The Dashboard links to publicly available websites that are government-owned or government sponsored, unless directed not to by the agency that owns the site. Acceptable federal government-owned or government-sponsored website domains include .gov, .mil and

The Dashboard also links to quasi-government agencies and websites created by public sector/private sector partnerships, state and local government sites, and some government-sponsored websites that end in .com, .org, or .net.

Links to Non-Government Websites

The Dashboard also links to websites that are not government-owned or government-sponsored if these websites provide government information and/or services in a way that is not available on an official government website. The Dashboard provides these non-government websites as a public service only.

The Beryllium-Associated Worker Registry (BAWR) Dashboard neither endorses nor guarantees in any way the external organizations, services, advice, or products included in these website links. Furthermore, the Dashboard neither controls nor guarantees the accuracy, relevance, timeliness or completeness of the information contained in non-government website links.

This easy-to-use navigation allows for intuitive and quick operation and is further examined below.

  • The side menu bar is a stationary element in the BAWR Dashboard and, as such, is always visible from any screen within the Dashboard. The menu bar holds the primary navigation.

You can select Adobe PDF in almost any Windows or macOS application while printing. Print to PDF creates an electronic copy of your file that you can save to disk. Printing a file to PDF using the Adobe PDF printer flattens the file.
