ABSTRACT

Inspection Report: Radiological Waste Operations in Area G at Los Alamos National Laboratory   [open pdf - 1MB]

"In 2011, assessments completed by the Los Alamos Field Office (Field Office) and the Department of Energy's (Department) Office of Enforcement and Oversight, Office of Health, Safety and Security identified operational problems that could adversely impact safety at Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los Alamos). These assessments found deficiencies in environmental management, operations, safety basis procedures and engineering safety system oversight. In addition to these issues, we identified opportunities for further improvements regarding: (1) training discrepancies; (2) consistency of Material Disposal Area G (Area G) operational activities with operational safety requirements; and (3) the use of safety-related documents that referenced outdated requirements."
