Issued to the University of California related to Radiological Worker Training Deficiencies at the Los Alamos National Laboratory
On December 4, 1996, the referenced potential noncompliance was reported to DOE by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The report describes an assessment conducted by LANL after a determination was made that at least nine employees at Building TA-55 had not received radiological worker training in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR 835.
The issue was initially raised by DOE/LAAO and the facility Price-Anderson Amendments Act (PAAA) coordinator conducted a preliminary review. Based on that assessment, the coordinator decided to report the matter as a minor noncompliance limited to the facility in question. The corrective actions associated with this matter
included a review of training requirements, completion of training for all workers whose training was determined to be deficient, and establishing a formal system for that facility to assure that in the future personnel would receive training requalification in a timely manner. These actions were completed by November 15, 1996.
