Radiological Violations at Los Alamos Lab (1999)

The Department of Energy cited University of California-operated Los Alamos National Laboratory for “violations that involve multiple failures to (1) conduct approved work activities in accordance with LANL’s established procedures and work controls; (2) adequately monitor for radioactive material; (3) post and control access to radiological areas; and (4) implement effective corrective actions.” “Although LANL is exempt from civil penalty by statute, because of the safety significance of these violations, DOE would have issued a proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty in the amount of $220,000.”
