Reactor Safety Violations (Oak Ridge National Laboratory)

Lockheed was fined for violating nuclear safety rules at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. “The penalty at Oak Ridge National Laboratory High Flux Isotope Reactor stems from the contractor’s ongoing and repetitive failures to adhere to its established procedures that ensure that the reactor operates within appropriate safety margins.
