Radiation Exposure (Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory)

The Department of Energy fined the Lockheed Martin Idaho Technologies Company for violating nuclear safety regulations. “The violations occurred in July 1996 when five workers in the INEEL [Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory] Waste Calcining Facility received unplanned internal radiation exposures.
