DOE contractor goes 1,000 days without injury

By The Tri-City HeraldNovember 14, 2013 

Employees at Advanced Technologies and Laboratories International have worked 1,000 days without a work-related injury that caused work days to be missed.

The Department of Energy contractor provides analytical services at Hanford's 222-S Analytical Laboratory, where highly radioactive samples are analyzed in hot cells.

"This milestone demonstrates ATL employees are mindful of their workplace hazards and are conscientious when applying the controls intended to keep them from injury," Joe Sondag, the DOE representative to the 222-S Laboratory, said in a statement.

ATL was named one of the 15 safest companies in the nation by EHS Today magazine.
