The Office of Enforcement and Oversight conducted an independent review of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Chemistry and Metallurgy Research (CMR) Facility fire suppression system (FSS) safety system last July.
And the results were just recently released.
“The DOE-HS and NNSA LASO review of the CMR fire suppression system was part of DOE’s normal processes to maintain operational awareness of the status of important safety systems, communicate identified issues, and ensure continuous improvement. This assessment and improvement process increases DOE, NNSA, and LANS confidence that safety-credited systems will function upon demand in the event of an accident,” said Chuck Keilers, LASO Assistant Manager for Safety Operations.
The purpose of the LASO assessment was to evaluate the functionality and operability of the FSS and to ensure that the system complied with U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) orders and standards and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards and requirements. The assessment was conducted July 25-August 5, 2011.
Here is a brief summary of the independent review:
