Special Report Order ssued to CH2M Hill Hanford Group, Inc., related to Multiple Nuclear Safety Issues at the Hanford Site
On September 18, 2001, the Office of Price-Anderson Enforcement (OE) in coordination with the DOE Office of River Protection (ORP) conducted a review of the actions taken by CH2M Hill Hanford Group (CHG) in response to an Enforcement Letter dated April 24, 2001. This Enforcement Letter referenced three Noncompliance Tracking System (NTS) reports submitted by CHG which collectively suggested weaknesses in your nuclear safety operations related to (1) corrective action management, (2) worker training and qualification, and (3) adherence to Authorization Basis (AB) documentation. Our review concluded that actions were taken by CHG to address both specific and programmatic concerns raised in the Enforcement Letter and that CHG appears to be making progress in implementing associated corrective actions.
