MOX facility surpasses 18 million work hours without lost workday

Savannah River Site’s mixed-oxide fuel fabrication facility surpassed 18 million consecutive work hours without a workday lost because of injury or illness, according to a news release.

Shaw Areva MOX Services, contractor for the plutonium disposition plant under construction, announced that the MOX site reached the safety milestone Thursday. The project has also held the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s top safety designation for the past year.

Last week, the National Nuclear Security Administration, which manages the project, began a process to place the multi-billion dollar MOX plant on standby after continued federal funding drawbacks.
