Radiation Watch: Feds seek information after radiation exposure in E. Idaho

BOISE, IDAHO — Federal nuclear officials want an eastern Idaho company to provide detailed information about how it determined a worker’s level of radiation exposure after a mishap exposed the worker to an amount initially estimated to be the maximum allowable in an entire year.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission also said Friday it has issued a formal letter to International Isotopes Inc. in Idaho Falls confirming specific steps the company will take before resuming some operations following the Aug. 20 incident.

“We’re taking this very, very seriously,” said Steve Laflin, the company’s president and CEO. “We’re going to aggressively go through the whole program from top to bottom to make sure we have the appropriate steps in place.” ∞∞∞∞∞ www.islandpacket.com ∞∞∞∞∞
