Lockheed Warned for Worker's Safety

The U.S. Department of Energy issued a warning to a Lockheed Martin Corp. unit for exposing workers to high levels of toxic airborne substances.

According to Law 360 (subscription required), from June 2010 to July 2011, several workers for the government’s Sandia National Laboratories in California and New Mexico were exposed to high levels of airborne toxic substances including styriumberyllium, and lead. One worker was exposed to airborne lead 88 times higher than the level allowed by industry standards and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Sandia is a national research laboratory that develops technologies to protect and update the nuclear arsenal of the U.S., ensure stable water supplies and energy, and provide new capabilities to the armed forces.
