Beryllium Controls at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Laboratory) did not properly manage activities related to beryllium contaminated equipment at building 9201-2. In particular, beryllium contaminated equipment was transferred to nonberyllium areas; employees working with the contaminated equipment were not fully identified and notified; and transferred equipment was not labeled appropriately. In addition, we observed that building 9201-2 was not posted as a potential beryllium contamination area and access controls were not established.
