Question about multiple background workers in VB.

They may be created by multiple classes.  I'm trying to create a function within an appliction that determines which, if any, of the background workers are busy.  Of course, I know how to query an individual one if I know it exists, but I want Windows to tell me which ones exist and whether or not they are busy.

Is there an object that will reveal that information to me?
