Federal agency urging action on Hanford Vapor exposure

Three Northwest Senators have urged the Department of Energy to implement a program to protect workers from vapor exposure at the Hanford site.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health wants a plan in place that calls for better exposure controls, safety, medical and health management.

The NIOSH report confirmed the Department of Energy is falling woefully short at protecting workers at the site from dangerous chemical vapors.

Oregon Senator Hank Wyden says he is working with Washington’s two senators to implement a plan right away.
