Posted: March 29, 2005

A BER Safety Manager has completed a site safety review of the operations of ARM Southern Great Plains Climate Research Facility at Lamont, Oklahoma, as part of an overall panel review of this facilitys operations. The facility covers a 55,000 square mile area in Oklahoma and Kansas and serves researchers from universities, DOE labs, and other Federal agencies. Findings of the review are that the facility is operated out of concern for employees who maintain and operate the instruments and equipment, it has a very good safety program, and safety equipment is inspected, in place, and its use is strictly enforced by fellow workers and management.
