Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

(Site Profile/Docket Number 055)

Location: Richland, Washington

Also known as: Battelle (PNL)

Worker Outreach Activities

Based on a recommendation from the Advisory Board to provide workers and site experts with opportunities to participate in developing the technical documents used in dose reconstruction, NIOSH established a Worker Outreach Program.

At Worker Outreach Meetings, current and former DOE and AWE employees have opportunities to obtain information about Site Profiles, Technical Basis Documents, and Technical Information Bulletins, and to provide information for consideration and possible use in dose reconstruction. This process is valuable to ensure that the technical documents used in dose reconstruction contain correct and useful information.

Below are the Worker Outreach Activities for PNNL:

  • April 22, 2004
    Meeting with Paper, Allied-Industrial, Chemical and Energy Workers (PACE) Local #8-0369; Fluor Hanford-Hanford Guards Union Local #21

    Note: The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Site Profile was introduced and discussed during the Hanford meeting.

Technical Documents

If the energy employee's personal radiation information is incomplete, NIOSH will use other sources to estimate the radiation dose. This may involve using technical documents called Site Profiles, Technical Basis Documents, and Technical Information Bulletins.

Site Profile

  • ORAUT-TKBS-0027: Site Profile for Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Rev. 2 [976 KB (57 pages)]

    Revision Includes: Modifies the scope of the PNNL Site Profile to reflect the decision to make no distinction between PNNL and Hanford until the year 2005. Combines the six technical basis documents into one Site Profile document for the period from 2005 to present. Incorporates formal internal and NIOSH review comments. Constitutes a total rewrite of the document.
