Two Hanford workers declined precautionary medical evaluation after reporting odors yesterday morning outside of SY Tank Farm in the 200-West Area. The employees were performing excavation work to support the installation of a safety shower outside the tank farm in an area that does not require the use of supplied-air respirators.
As a precaution, workers were instructed to leave the area. Sampling was completed yesterday afternoon and the results were below action limits. Access to the area was restored about 5 p.m.
