Savannah River Lab Passes 10 Million-Hour Milestone

Employees at the DOE national laboratory in Aiken, S.C., reached that mark recently.

Employees at the Savannah River National Laboratory in Aiken, S.C., recently surpassed 10 million hours without a lost-time injury. The DOE laboratory's most recent lost-time injury occurred six years ago, according to SRNL's Feb. 14 news release, which says each year since being named a national laboratory in 2004, SRNL has achieved the best safety record among all U.S. Department of Energy national labs. (The other labs' 2011 statistics are not yet available for comparison, it says.)

"The work the people of this laboratory perform is challenging," said Dr. Terry Michalske, SRNL's director. "But our people bring a careful attention and focus to the job and a commitment to watching out for themselves and their co-workers. The result is high-quality work performed safely. That's reflected not just in our safety statistics, but in the trust that the nation puts in us to conduct important tasks."

"I'm pleased to acknowledge great achievements in safety performance, and SRNL is a world leader when it comes to working safely in a laboratory environment," Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC President and CEO Dwayne Wilson said. "At the same time, we should never take performance for granted. The work we do requires focused commitment from every organization, every day. We continue to renew our emphasis on safety because it's the cornerstone of everything we do."

SRNL is the national laboratory at the Savannah River Site. Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC is the management and operating contractor for SRS and SRNL.
