    The SL-1, or Stationary Low-Power Reactor Number One, was a United States Army experimental nuclear power reactor in the United States that underwent a steam explosion and meltdown on January 3, , killing its three operators. The direct cause was the improper withdrawal of the central control rod, responsible for absorbing neutrons in the reactor on: National Reactor Testing Station, Idaho . Safety is considered to be an inviolable constraint and part of the social contract under which nuclear plants are allowed to operate. The shared responsibilities for nuclear plant safety are described in Sidebar For purposes of this report, safety culture is perhaps best understood as those organizational processes that ultimately influence and reinforce an organizational culture that.

    The Rocky Flats Plant was a former U.S. nuclear weapons production facility located about 15 miles (24 km) northwest of Denver.. Historical releases caused radioactive (plutonium, americium) contamination within and outside its boundaries. The contamination primarily resulted from releases from the pad drum storage area – wind-blown plutonium that leaked from barrels of radioactive waste.

Get this from a library. Worker health and safety concerns during nuclear facility cleanup. [Susan Johnson; Louis Yellowrobe; National Conference of State Legislatures.]. 2 Hazards Ahead: Managing Cleanup Worker Health and Safety at the Nuclear Weapons Complex demand the application of great talent and re-sources.

The tens of thousands of people who will be engaged in cleanup of the Weapons Com-plex will join a large and growing industry devot-ed to the characterization and restoration of con-taminated environments.

DOE G A provides guidance for effective implementation of 10 CFRSubpart B, Safety Basis Requirements, which requires contractors responsible for a DOE nuclear facility to analyze the facility, the work to be performed, and the associated hazards and to identify the conditions, safe boundaries, and hazard controls necessary to.

Health and Safety Hazards. While decontamination is performed to protect health and safety, it can pose hazards under certain circumstances. Decontamination methods may: Be incompatible with the hazardous substances being removed (Le., a decontamination method may react with contaminants to produce an explosion, heat, or toxic products).

Nuclear labor issues exist within the international nuclear power industry and the nuclear weapons production sector worldwide, impacting upon the lives and health of laborers, itinerant workers and their families. A subculture of frequently undocumented workers do the dirty, difficult, and potentially dangerous work shunned by regular employees.

Workers working in response to the emergency at the site of the Fukushima Daiichi's nuclear plant are exposed to traditional OSH risks including explosion and fire as well as to radiation. The International Basic Safety Standards for Protection against Ionizing Radiation and for the Safety of Radiation Sources (BSS) provide a worldwide basis for harmonized radiation protection standards that.

This paper concludes that, thus far, Department of Energy has (DOE) and its contractors have devoted little attention to cleanup worker health and safety.

They have not convinced workers and managers that a “new culture” of accountability in environment, safety, and health is truly ascendent. Ted S.

DOE provides safety requirements and guidance in a number of forms. One form in which we publish requirements is through rulemaking. Federal rules and regulations are published in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and are noticed for review and comment by members of the public in the Federal Register (FR) consistent with the Administrative Procedures Act.

The regulations promulgated under paragraph (1) shall not apply to any facility that is a component of, or any activity conducted under, the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program provided for under Executive Order No. dated February 1, (as in force pursuant to section of the Department of Defense Authorization Act, (Public Law 98–)).

W ith its $ trillion price tag for the modernization of the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal and production complex, the U.S. Congressional Budget Office has induced “sticker shock” on Capitol Hill. Yet despite this enormous projected cost for rebuilding the U.S.

triad of land, submarine, and bomber nuclear forces, the CBO has in fact lowballed its estimate by excluding the costs for. The Department of Energy's (DOE) Hanford Site in Washington State stores 56 million gallons of untreated radioactive and hazardous wastes resulting from decades of nuclear weapons production.

DOE is constructing facilities at the site to treat these wastes before permanent disposal. As part of meeting health, safety, and other standards, work at the site has sometimes been suspended.

In most cases, safety policies are based on Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements, so they are similar whether one is working at a nuclear plant or some other electric.
