AIKEN, S.C. – Savannah River Remediation (SRR) hired a new class of Radiological Control (RadCon) Inspectors to begin working for SRR, the liquid waste contractor at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Savannah River Site (SRS).
Last month, SRR hired a class of 27 RadCon Inspectors with an eye for obtaining knowledge transferred from generations of workers with significant expertise at SRS.
SRR recognizes the need for providing continued, reliable operations by ensuring the experienced generation of workers can share their expertise with those coming up, said Tom Foster, SRR President and Project Manager.
“SRR is steadily planning for the next generation of workers to continue the liquid waste mission,” Foster said. “It is important that knowledge be passed on from the generations of experts already in the field to onboarding employees.”
Half of the onboarding RadCon Inspectors will work in H Tank Farm, which is one of two “tank farms” at SRS. These two areas contain a total of 35 million gallons of high-level radioactive waste. The other half will work in the Defense Waste Processing Facility where the high-level waste from the tank farms is converted into a solid glass form suitable for long-term storage and disposal. DWPF is the only operating radioactive glassification plant in the nation.
Additional hiring is forecasted in the upcoming months. Visit SRR’s homepage http://www.srremediation.com, click the photo left of “SRR is Hiring,” and select the AECOM link at the bottom of the page to search for career opportunities with SRR.
