2.5.2 Involvement of Retired Key Personnel
The results of the survey for key personnel across the DOE complex indicate that many technically active
retirees represent a large portion of the 3U expertise. Many of these retirees are involved with current "U
programs. (SRS does not have any retirees serving as consultants, nor are there any plans to include them.) At
ORNL, highly qualified and experienced retirees are working as consultants and serving as mentors in ongoing
"U-related activities. The activities that retirees are involved with include MSRE remediation, facility upgrades
and maintenance activities, thorium recovery from "U at Building 3019, and the DNFSB Recommendation 97-
1 program. These experts are providing valuable knowledge in areas such as materials handling, facility design
and operations, processing, 3U storage, and safety. In working with the current generation of workers, the
retirees are not only imparting their technical knowledge and experience but are also providing a historical
perspective as well (e.g., the reason things were done a certain way).
