Worker Safety and Health at Department of Energy Sites
David C. Trimble (au)
Work carried out at Dept. of Energy (DOE) sites across the country involves, among other things, (1) research on dangerous nuclear materials, such as plutonium, and (2) the handling and disposal of radioactive and hazardous waste that, if not handled safely, could cause nuclear accidents or expose the public and the environment to heavy doses of radiation. Workers at DOE sites also perform a wide range of other activities that run the risk of accidents which could result in injuries, long-term illnesses, or even death. The Dept. of Laboräó»s (Labor) Occupational Safety and Health Admin. (OSHA) issues and enforces occupational health and safety regulations. In 2006, DOE promulgated regulations -- 10 C.F.R. Part 851 (Part 851) -- which currently govern contractorsäó» worker safety and health at certain DOE sites. This report identifies (1) key similarities and differences between Part 851, OSHA regulations, and the OSH Act; and (2) views of DOE, Labor, and OSHA officials; union representatives; and contractor representatives on whether Part 851 is equally, less, or more protective than OSHA regulations and the OSH Act. This is a print on demand report.
