Contract extension?

If the Los Alamos field office recommends a contract extension, what does that say about the safety culture? In a year when there was a near miss electrical accident, awarding extra years sends a strong message about how NNSA views safety. Will all their good words be erased by a single action?

"NEAR MISS — near misses describe incidents where, given a slight shift in time or distance, injury, ill-health or damage easily could have occurred, but didn't."

The LANS LANSCE incident was NOT a "near miss" since significant human injury and property damage DID occur.

From the very limited news that has been released, an electrical worker at LANSCE was conducting the same job on a Sunday as he did without incident on a Saturday. Someone changed something overnight, and he is nearly killed and winds up in the hospital for an extended period.

What was changed? Who changed it? Why has more information not been shared?

More importantly, how will this impact the award of an extension year on the current contract?

First, you mess things up then you give your managers and yourself big executive bonuses for "fixing things". Rinse and repeat as many times as you need to beef up your retirement treasure chest. Winning!!!!

Nobody yells "Winning!!!!" if he is winning except fools and people who never expected to win. Charlie is neither. He always expected to win because he was backed by Bechtel, who by definition never loses. The only losers here are those who choose to parody Charlie instead of working every day to get him out. Make some changes in how you do what you call a career, in the sense of being unrelentingly moral, professional, competent, focused on your own career success, and unwilling to bend any of those choices for any reason. Then you will be "winning" and you won't have to be an asshole and shout it.
