Moab Project Safely Logs 2 Million Work Hours

(Grand Junction, CO) ― The number 1,584 may not mean much to most people, but for the workers on the U.S. Department of Energy Moab Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action Project, it represents the number of days without a work-related, lost-time injury or illness, as defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. That’s more than 4 years, from November 2009 through February 2014. In those 4-plus years, employees have safely logged more than 2 million work hours.
