What we get done depends on how we do it

The way the Lab operates helps us to safely, securely and efficiently do work to protect the nation. Our teamwork and approach to problem-solving have resulted in new systems, tools and processes to improve the Lab.
 
Safety: Our priority is to protect our employees, the public and the environment.
 
Security: To uphold security, the Laboratory provides workers with tools and support to work securely and to protect our special nuclear material, cyber and electronic systems, property, information and personnel.
 
Environment: Our environmental stewardship program focuses on managing resources, preventing pollution and sustaining the environment.
 
Infrastructure and Facilities: Our campus is almost 38 square miles with 900 buildings—we're working to reduce our structural footprint, update the infrastructure and provide employees with safe, energy-efficient facilities.
