PARSONS reaches safety milestone on SWPF PROJECT


AIKEN, SC- Parsons is pleased to announce that the Salt Waste Processing Facility (SWPF) team in Aiken, South Carolina, completed one million manhours without a lost-time accident.

“Safety continues to be the number one priority of the SWPF project,” said Dave Amerine, Parsons SWPF Project Manager. “Our successful safety program requires total involvement from everyone on the project, and we commend our team for this safety milestone.”

The SWPF Employee Safety Committee will recognize this achievement with an official celebration on September 20, 2007.

In 2004, the Department of Energy (DOE) selected Parsons to design, construct, commission, and operate the SWPF for one year. The SWPF is the cornerstone of DOE plans for treatment and disposal of 31 million gallons of radioactive salt wastes stored in large underground tanks at the Savannah River Site. Construction of the facility is scheduled to commence this fall.
