WRPS expands web-based tools on chemical vapors – Oct. 13, 2016

Today, Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) launches a redesigned and expanded website that provides greater understanding of chemical vapors at the Hanford Site.

The hanfordvapors.com website, initially launched in June, includes new content developed by a cross-section of workers at the site who are leaders in their fields of expertise. Over the past six weeks, the team—which included union, professional and management representatives—rebuilt the site from the ground up in a collaborative effort to increase and improve the flow of information to the workforce and the public.

Available tools include:
• Access to field data and sampling results
• More complete information as to how WRPS protects workers
• An explanation of technologies being developed and tested in the field
• Expanded definitions and background on a number of vapors-related topics

“We are putting a priority on information, transparency and trust,” said WRPS President Mark Lindholm. “This website allows interested parties to have an informed dialogue on this important issue so that we can all work together toward our shared goal—safely cleaning up the Hanford Site.”

The tools and information available on the website are part of broader efforts by WRPS to increase engagement with the workforce and stakeholders on the chemical vapors issue.

We hope the site will serve as a valued resource in the vapors discussion. We invite you to visit the site often and sign up for email alerts when new information is posted. The site will evolve as the dialogue continues, and we invite you to contact us with any feedback using the Send Us a Message tool at the bottom of every webpage.
