The U.S. Department of Energy recently awarded Chris Fischahs of Los Alamos its annual Safety System Oversight (SSO) Award. At the time of the award, Fischahs was a SSO staff member of the Safety Evaluation Team at the Nationals Nuclear Security Administration’s Los Alamos Field Office.
The award is national recognition of the extensive safety systems oversight Fischahs performed in 2013 and the resulting improvements in operational safety at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). His operational awareness and oversight activities consistently provided Los Alamos Field Office managers with accurate, objective information on the performance of safety systems.
“We are proud and fortunate to have Chris on the field office team,” said Los Alamos Field Office Manager Kim Davis Lebak.
Examples of his oversight activities in 2013 were the completion of four vital safety systems assessments that led to implementation of safety improvements; input to a federal integrated project team that led to improved safety systems designs.
