SRNS Safety Program Continues to Earn DOE STAR Status

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC. was recognized as a Department of Energy Voluntary Protection Program STAR participant for continued excellence in safety programs on April 12.

The re-certification process for DOE’s highest safety honor takes place every three years and analyzes DOE contractor safety performance, work activities, employee engagement and overall safety culture. This year’s award marks the third consecutive VPP Star status SRNS has achieved since becoming the SRS Management and Operations contractor in 2008.

“SRNS employees recognize the importance of a strong safety culture.  It is also important to them that our company remain an industry leader in nuclear-and-workplace safety. Achieving VPP STAR Participant status is a meaningful validation from the Department of Energy that SRNS’ safety systems are robust and most importantly, that our workforce embodies a solid commitment and belief in the importance of safety both on-thejob and off,” said Stuart MacVean, SRNS President and CEO.

Michael Budney, Savannah River Operations Office Manager, presented MacVean with a VPP STAR certificate at a company meeting where he commended SRNS for their continued commitment to onand- off the job safety.

“The fact that SRNS is receiving its third consecutive VPP STAR recognition shows how your commitment to safety excellence remains the foundation of our success,” Budney said. “You - the SRNS workforce - are a key contributor to the Site’s proud safety legacy.”  In 2017, SRNS also received its 17th consecutive DOE-VPP Star of Excellence Award.
