Cournoyer, Ph.D. MET-2 Los Alamos National Laboratory UNCLASSIFIED Operated by Los Alamos National Security, LLC for NNSA Slide 1 Outline Current ChemLog Inventory Results of CAO-AM Assessment TA-55 Hazardous Material Protection Program (HMPP) UNCLASSIFIED Operated by Los Alamos National Security, LLC for NNSA

Slide 2 ChemLog Category Chemical Inventory Containers in ChemLog Containers Inventoried Containers Added Yesterday Location Buildings Rooms Organization Divisions Group Chemical Owners UNCLASSIFIED Operated by Los Alamos National Security, LLC for NNSA Value 4079 4064 75 18 97 17 30 116 Slide 3

CAO-AM Assessment Results Total Chemical Sample = 270 Total Errors = 133 Percent Error = 49% Percent Accurate = 51% Breakdown of Errors Missing Barcodes = 2 Chemicals present in the building but not listed in ChemLog = 31

Chemicals listed in ChemLog but not found during the facility tour = 98 Possible Causes for the Error 72 of the 98 not-found chemicals from our original list were listed in ChemLog under Obie Gillespie as owner, but according to Doris Ford, the chemicals were never in the room. In 7/21/04 Doris Ford submitted a message requesting that they be removed from the ChemLog list, explaining that the chemicals were never in the room. In 10/03/07 Obie Gillespie resubmitted the request. They are still on ChemLog.
