Employee Information

Vit Plant Status: On May 26 the DOE, other Hanford contractors and the Vit Plant began implementing a deliberate, phased approach to remobilize Hanford Site operations.

During these unprecedented times, it is critical that all Vit Plant team members are well informed and understand that their health and safety is our top priority. This page serves as a resource for our team members, including those without work email, for updates on Site posture, new safety measures implemented, and messages communicated by project leadership. 

New messages and updates will be posted here as the project continues to move through each of the three remobilization phases. Workers will be contacted by their supervisor when it is time to return to work.

If you have questions, please send them to wtpcomm@bechtel.com and your inquiry will be directed to the appropriate person or department. You also can find information on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/HanfordVitPlant/.
