January 2014

Follow-up Review of the Hanford Site Chronic Beryllium Disease Prevention Program

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Enforcement and Oversight (Independent Oversight), within the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), conducted an independent follow-up review of corrective actions taken to improve the Hanford Site chronic beryllium disease prevention program (CBDPP) from November 4-7, 2013.  The purpose of the review was to provide the Richland Operations Office, the Office of River Protection, and site contractor management with an assessment of the effectiveness of the implementation of key corrective actions taken in response to the 2010 HSS inspection of the Hanford Site CBDPP, specifically with respect to beryllium postings and facility assessments and characterizations.
