Nevada National Security Site Operational Readiness Review for the Joint Actinide Shock Physics Experimental Research Facility Restart Pre-visit [HIAR-NNSS-2011-04-28]

In coordination with the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Service Center, the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS) site lead participated in a pre-visit for the NNSA Operational Readiness Review (ORR) of the Joint Actinide Shock Physics Experimental Research (JASPER) facility restart conducted April 25-28, 2011.

The results of the pre-visit were the completion of required site access training, coordination with Site Office and JASPER facility counterparts regarding the breadth and scope of the ORR and obtaining applicable documents for review, and the observance of an emergency management exercise conducted on April 27. The exercise pre-brief conducted on April 26 was very thorough and the accomplishment of the exercise during the pre-visit precludes the site having to perform another exercise during the ORR.
