The following awards demonstrate ATL's ability to provide valuable solutions to some of the most complex challenges facing the federal government today.
Argonne Director's Award, 2017
ATL's Gordon Johnson and Phil Ryan, members of the Excess Equipment and Materials Disposition Team, were recognized for their efforts in coordinating the permanent off-site disposition of long standing legacy equipment, materials, and waste from the work spaces within Argonne National Laboratory's research facilities. "The work was done safely, compliantly and with minimal impact to the research programs performing work within the benefited facilities." – Paul K. Kearns, Interim Laboratory Director
DOE's Star of Excellence Award, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2015
ATL demonstrated its commitment to instilling a strong safety culture by achieving DOE VPP Star Site status in 2008, the first small business prime contractor of its kind to do so. ATL has been re-evaluated and successfully achieved VPP Star status at the Hanford 222-S Laboratory in 2011, 2013, and most recently in 2015. And in conjunction with other DOE prime contractors at Hanford, ATL received the 2013 Outreach Award in recognition of outreach activity and results and for encouragement of others.
Star status acknowledges ATL's ability to seamlessly implement and foster the core tenets of VPP, namely Management Leadership, Employee Involvement, Worksite Analysis, Hazard Prevention and Control, and Safety and Health Training. Living these tenets requires management commitment, employee commitment, an effective safety and health program, injury/illness rates below industry average, and managers and employees who work together in preventing accidents and eliminating hazards.

As part of the team representing the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Division of Safety Research, ATL was recognized for its involvement in the development of the NIOSH smart phone app for ladder safety. This app also received two NIOSH awards: the 2014 Alice Hamilton Award for Occupational Safety and Health: Engineering and Control and 2014 Bullard-Sherwood Research-to-Practice [r2p] Technology Award.
Hazardous Materials Identification and Control Research Award, 2014
ATL has been awarded the 2014 Hazardous Materials Identification and Control Research Award by the Academy of Certified Hazardous Material Managers, Eastern Washington Chapter, for its involvement and leadership in the pilot project to use RFID (radio-frequency identification) for chemical management on the Hanford Site and implementation at the 222-S Laboratory.
