Sellafield remediation clean-up team clocks up two million hours without serious accident

A team performing hazardous decommissioning tasks at Sellafield has clocked up an astonishing two million working hours without a serious accident.

The Site Remediation and Decommissioning Projects (SR&DP) team is responsible for decommissioning redundant facilities on the nuclear site.

These include reactors, laboratories, waste stores, and fuel fabrication and reprocessing plants.

Its work ranges from internal strip out to demolition.

The team also supports decommissioning of the legacy ponds and silos.

And it is responsible for the site’s land quality programme and high-hazard stack removal, including the primary separation plant and pile reactor stacks.

Steve Slater, SR&DP head of programme said: “Passing the milestone of 2m hours without a lost-time event is a fantastic achievement given the geography, condition and complex nature of SR&DP facilities.

“This represents a concerted effort and vigilance by the whole team in SR&DP including our contract colleagues who have contributed in equal measure.

“SR&DP has made a significant contribution towards accelerating risk and hazard reduction, whilst demonstrating consistent safety performance levels.”
