Environment and Worker Safety Control Systems at the National Nuclear Security Administration's Kansas City Plant

The Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration's Kansas City Plant is located within the Bannister Federal Complex in Kansas City, Missouri, which also houses the General Services Administration and other agencies. Current and former employees and families of former employees of the Bannister Complex have recently raised concerns about serious illnesses, in some cases leading to death, resulting from exposure to toxins at the Complex. Due to the seriousness of the health issues that were raised, the Office of Inspector General initiated an audit to determine whether the Kansas City Plant had controls in place to protect the environment, and, the health and safety of its employees.
