Odors reported outside of AW Farm

Two Hanford workers are undergoing medical evaluation after reporting odors today outside of AW Farm. One of the workers reported symptoms while the other did not. A third worker also reported odors but declined a precautionary medical evaluation.

The employees were supporting AW Farm exhauster stack extension work and were not in an area that requires use of a supplied-air respirator. Workers were instructed to leave the area and access to the area is restricted.

Industrial hygiene technicians are collecting samples in the area using direct-read instruments. Results will be shared when available.
