Since 2011, we have been cleaning up contaminated, unused facilities on the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR). In 2020, we became the first in the world to safely remove a gaseous diffusion plant. In addition to removing excess facilities, we maintain facilities across ORR that are waiting for disposition, and provide critical upgrades to extend the life of active, but aging, facilities.
Safety is always the top priority at UCOR. We are a DOE Voluntary Protection Program Star site, a designation given to only the safest sites in the DOE Complex. Our award-winning safety performance has earned us many accolades.
Employee involvement is a key aspect of our safety culture. We empower our workers to stop work if they see something questionable. We also have strong worker engagement program to ensure our team members feel safe in their work environment.
