PITTSBURGH, Pa. (PRWEB) May 15, 2018
SECUR (http://www.securllc.com), provider of transportation logistics, packaging, technical services and waste management for radioactive, hazardous and non-hazardous waste and byproducts, announced today that Larry W. Camper, a member of its Board of Directors, will serve on an expert panel for the National Academies of Sciences.
Mr. Camper will participate in the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) Experts' Meeting on Risk-Informed Cleanup Decisions to be convened by The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. The meeting will take place May 16-17, 2018, in Washington, D.C.
The panel is being convened in response to a congressional request. Mr. Camper and other panel members will address a conceptual framework being developed by GAO to assess best practices for taking a risk-informed approach to decision-making. They will compare GAO’s best practices to the U.S. Department of Energy's guidance for making environmental cleanup decisions.
Mr. Camper, USNRC Retired, is a health physicist, radiation safety expert, environmental remediation expert and executive with more than 40 years of professional experience in both the private and public sectors of the nuclear industry. He joined the SECUR Board of Directors in February 2018.
“We are proud to see Larry take on such an important role in this effort,” said John Evanko, SECUR president. “As direct beneficiaries of his expertise in nuclear safety and environmental protection, we know he has a lot to offer the panel.”
Mr. Camper said, “The process developed by GAO may assist the DOE in its risk-based decision-making for environmental remediation, and have an overall positive impact on nuclear waste management. My fellow members of the panel and I want to ensure that our government’s cleanup decisions are made using a risk-informed, consistent approach that reduces health and safety risks while still being cost-effective.”
SECUR provides clients in industry and government with asset-based logistics, packaging, technical services and waste management that enable them safely and cost efficiently to handle a range of radioactive, hazardous, industrial and other complex wastes generated from environmental remediation, decommissioning and waste management activities.
