Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
Worker Safety Infractions at Lawrence Livermore Lab (1998)
The Department of Energy (DOE) found a series of critical safety infractions occurring between May and December 1997 at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), which is operated by the University of California. During that time, radioactive material handlers repeatedly violated safety procedures regarding the moving and storage of radioactive material. LLNL is exempt from civil penalty by statute; however, the DOE would have issued a civil penalty in the amount of $153,750.
