NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Oct. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) announced today that its SN3 (Stoller Newport News Nuclear) subsidiary has recorded more than 1 million safe hours since its last Occupational Safety and Health Administration lost work day case.
"Worker safety is a core value," said SN3 President Nick Lombardo. "This milestone acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our employees to support our DOE client."
SN3 team members and subcontractors clocked 1 million safe hours through their work with the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Legacy Management. The company supports Legacy Management's post-closure responsibilities at more than 100 work locations throughout the contiguous U.S., Puerto Rico and the Aleutian Islands.
During these 1 million safe hours, SN3 initiated an assessment of the Legacy Management Support Integrated Safety Management System and Voluntary Protection Program to identify improvements necessary to support safety performance, with a goal of achieving a recordable case rate substantially below the DOE complex annual average.
SN3 is a full-service nuclear operations and environmental services company that combines the expertise of HII's S.M. Stoller Corp. and Newport News Nuclear subsidiaries. Based in Broomfield, Colorado, the new company, announced January, provides Department of Energy and Department of Defense markets with a one-stop resource for nuclear operations and environmental service capabilities.
