The Department of Energy (DOE) evaluated the facts and circumstances surrounding the unplanned personnel contaminations/intakes at the University of California-operated Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s (LLNL) Hazardous Waste Management Facilities on July 2, 1997, where five workers were exposed to an excessive amount of radiological material. The DOE concluded that violations of nuclear safety requirements likely occurred. Although LLNL is exempt from civil penalty by statute, the DOE would have issued a civil penalty in the amount of $159,375.
