A celebration was held yesterday to mark the safety milestone of Y-12’s Direct-Hire Construction team for working one million hours, covering a 633-day period, without a lost-time injury. Some 285 people including building trade crafts, non-manual staff and escorts worked without a lost-time accident during this period. The Construction team’s last lost workday was in September 2010.
Y‑12 Direct-Hire Construction craft worked on more than 125 projects and supported another 35 subcontracted projects important to the Y‑12 mission.
