|ASME NQA-1 Quality Assurance Program
Manufacturing Sciences Corporation (MSC) utilizes a documented Quality Assurance System that ensures our products meet customer requirements and expectations.
The MSC Quality Assurance System is documented in the QA Manual and implements procedures that meet the quality requirements of ASME NQA-1. The requirements from ASME NQA-1 are also employed to meet 10 CFR 830 Subpart A and the US Department of Energy's QC-1.
Quality checkpoints are established for the manufacturing of products, starting at the proposal and contract stages and continuing through order entry, procurement of materials, manufacturing traveler reviews, development of inspection and test plans, and in-process and final inspections to ensure that customer requirements have been met.
Personnel performing the work provide the first line checks, and inspections are conducted by trained and qualified Quality Assurance personnel. MSC's Quality Assurance System is regularly evaluated through assessment, audits, and regulatory reviews. The MSC Quality Assurance team functions independently of manufacturing operations and can interrupt production at any point if quality standards are not being achieved during the process.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:|
18 AUGUST 2006
James Neeley, Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development announced Wednesday, August 16th, that Manufacturing Sciences Corporation in Oak Ridge has been awarded recertification of the department’s Volunteer STAR award. The Volunteer STAR (Safety Through Accountability and Recognition) award is the state’s highest honor for workplace safety, and a nationally recognized program.
Manufacturing Sciences Corporation (MSC), a wholly owned subsidiary of EnergySolutions, a Salt Lake City based nuclear services corporation with approximately 2,000 employees in 39 states, including over 600 employees in Tennessee. MSC first received the Volunteer STAR award in 2000, and this marks the second time the company’s program has received recertification from the State of Tennessee. Commissioner Neeley stated, “The recertification’s show Manufacturing Sciences has a strong, consistent commitment to workplace safety.”
Program participants are required to undergo recertification every three to five years. MSC’s Oak Ridge facility, which began operations in 1985, was originally founded to produce depleted uranium products for defense, energy and research applications, MSC remains what the company believes to be the sole commercial facility in the world with the capability to cast, flat-roll, and machine products from depleted uranium. The skill of our workforce in fabricating products from depleted uranium is second only to government facilities and is unparalleled in the commercial marketplace.
The fact that MSC has participated successfully in the Tennessee STAR program for more than six years, has completed more than 1,300 days without a lost-time accident, and has maintained a total injury rate eight times less than the industry average is a testament to the dedication of our workforce. The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local 480 represent MSC employees.
