Posted: Updated:
HANFORD, WA - A Washington River Protection Solutions employee has been cleared to return to work after an evaluation Tuesday by medical professionals for symptoms related to potential exposure to chemical vapors.

On Tuesday morning, two WRPS employees entered an analytical room at Hanford's 222-S Laboratory. 

No work had started when both reported odors. The employees left the room and shut the door. 

A notification was issued to restrict other workers from entering the room, samples were taken and one of the employees was sent to the onsite medical provider for assessment.
