Los Alamos National Laboratory managers are again stressing the need to report work-related injuries, a recently obtained lab report shows.
Two employees were overexposed to hydrochloric- and nitric-acid fumes June 16, according to the report, which was released by the watchdog Project on Government Oversight on Wednesday. “Neither worker reported to occupational medicine on that day,” the report reads.
A lab spokeswoman confirmed the report’s credibility .
Top lab managers did not learn of the incident until Aug. 3.
