MOX Construction Reaches 8 Million Safe Working Hours
Thursday, March 8, 2012 - 12:00am
Today the MOX project reached 8,000,000 safe work hours, a new safety record for the project based at Savannah River Site in South Carolina. A typical heavy and engineering construction site in the U.S. would have 64 lost workday cases in the span of 8 million hours worked.
Last year, the MOX project launched a new safety incentive program to increase safety awareness and encourage safety performance. This newest safety milestone is evidence of the ‘safety-first’ commitment and continues to move the project forward in its mission to produce MOX fuel for commercial reactors.
