Environment, safety, and health annual report, fiscal year 1982


Other (Open)

During FY82, Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC) was DOE's lead center for coal gasification, fluidized-bed combustion, unconventional gas recovery, gas stream cleanup, components, combined cycle component integration, and instrumentation and control technologies. Part of METC's overall research effort is the responsibility for monitoring and managing the environmental, safety, and health concerns of each project it supports. This report describes these efforts during FY82. The Environmental Protection Management Program includes monitoring for compliance to standards for air emissions, water/wastewater, and solids/hazardous wastes. In addition, technical assistance in these areas is provided to both on- and off-site projects. During 1982, significant strides were made in implementation of the Wastewater Management Plan. The plan proposed a facility that will serve the environmental needs of METC for the future. The safety program at METC has been expanded from the original safety office to meet the needs of a growing number of projects and personnel and to provide broad safety analysis as test equipment and controls become more complicated. A Process Safety and Environment Committee and a Field Safety Committee are utilized to work with the safety office in responding to on- and off-site safety needs. In response of an increased emphasis on health hazards, the industrial hygiene program has expanded. A comprehensive program includes workplace health management, periodic inspections, exposure evaluations, chemical inventories, and respiratory protection. There was an increased emphasis on employee on-the-job training and general interest training. 7 figures, 1 table.
