"Tom Cochran is a nuclear physicist and an expert in the process of manufacturing nuclear weapons. He is Director of the Nuclear Program at the National Resources Defense Council and served on boards for the DOE and Nuclear Regulatory Commission. He was asked to analyze some of the practices at Rocky Flats for the class-action lawsuit, Merilyn Cook et al vs. Rockwell International Corporation and the Dow Chemical Company. (1996)"

He details how dangerous plutonium is, who even a dust nano particle of it in the lungs can cause lung cancer. He details how it is pyrophoric, and the particles from this fire are cancer causing. Numerous small fires happened constantly in the glove boxes at Rocky Flats.

FIRST MAJOR, OUT OF CONTROL PLUTONIUM FIRE


In 1957, a plutonium fire went out of control and it took 13 hours to put it out. 

SECOND MAJOR OUT OF CONTROL PLUTONIUM FIRE


In 1969, another major out of control plutonium fire happened at Rocky Flats. This time, some plutonium was released, but no one knows how much plutonium went downwind.

IAEA SAYS PLUTONIUM IS A HAZARD TO HEALTH


Jebus April 21, 2015 The Plutonium isotopes 239Pu (T1/2=2.4.104a), 240Pu (T1/2=6.5.103a) and 242Pu (T1/2=3.7.105a) are anthropogenic radionuclides emitted into the environment by nuclear activities. Pu is accumulated in the human body and hence, poses a considerable hazard to human health. Due to the long half-lives, these isotopes are present in the biosphere on large time scales and a build-up can be expected.

The HUGE scope and scale of the coverups around Rocky Flats and involvement of the US goverment agencies charged with investigating Rocky Flats is outlined by the lawyer above. 

This facility can be taken to be a general example of other nuclear companies and other facilities like it around the world. Cover ups are common. Lawsuits by former workers are common. Lawsuits by surrounding communities should also be common, for the same reasons outlined above.

How Can A Radiation Exposure Victim Get 10 Million Dollars As Compensation For Health And Property Damage? via @AGreenRoad

There is no 'safe' nuclear anything. Even small doses of radiation are cumulative and lead to increased risk of cancer, future genetic damage, and worse.
