Hanford Site Radiation and Hazardous Waste Training
The Hanford Site (Site) has numerous radiological and hazardous waste areas. To ensure worker safety and health, the Richland Operations Office (Richland) and the Office of River Protection (ORP) require radiation and/or hazardous waste training for employees who enter contaminated areas. Site records showed that many employees received radiation training even though there was no record of their entry into contaminated areas. This indicated that employees may have received training that was not required. The objective of the audit was to determine if employees received training in radiation and/or hazardous waste that was not required.
