About SRNL

Operational Excellence

SRNL’s Vision is Enabled by Seven Core Competencies that Crosscut the Mission Areas

1. Accelerating remediation, minimizing waste, and reducing risks

2. Enabling next-generation nuclear materials processing and disposition

3. Creating manufacturing solutions for EM, NNSA, and energy security

4. Assuring production and supply of strategic materials and components

5. Sensing, characterizing, assessing and deterring nuclear proliferation

6. Engineering new materials and their applications with data-driven modeling and simulation

7. Securing connected control systems and associated data

The Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) is the applied research and development laboratory at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Savannah River Site (SRS). The laboratory applies state-of-the-art science to provide practical, high-value, cost-effective solutions to complex technical problems. The laboratory earns its world-class reputation because of its talented people and their unwavering commitment to safety, security and quality in the delivery of technology solutions that work.

SRNL applies this commitment to solving the complex problems of the times, such as the detection of weapons of mass destruction, the cleanup of contaminated groundwater and soils, the development of hydrogen as an energy source, the need for a viable national defense, and the safe management of hazardous materials. Building on over 50 years of technological achievement and a framework of vital core competencies, the laboratory will continue to identify, develop and deploy innovative technologies to meet the needs of a variety of customers across the nation.

SRNL Vision
“To be the nation’s premier applied science laboratory in Environmental Management, National and Homeland Security, and Energy Security by delivering world-class innovative performance in national defense and homeland security technologies, hydrogen technology, and cleanup.”

SRNL Safety
At the Savannah River National Laboratory, safety is the number one priority.  The greatest test of any company is in how well it protects the safety and health of its people.  With approximately seven million safe hours worked, SRNL is a recognized leader in providing a safe work environment.  At SRNL we strive to perform all aspects of our work safely in a continuous effort toward injury- and incident-free performance.

The Integrated Safety Management System is the framework for our safety culture and relies heavily on defining the scope of work, analyzing the hazards, developing and implementing controls, performing the work safely and then providing feedback for improvement.  We believe in zero incidents and injuries and a dedication by leadership to provide a safe environment.  Every employee at SRNL, regardless of rank, is empowered to prevent incidents and is given the authority to stop any work activity if they believe an activity may be unsafe in any way.
