After receiving and sharing OE-3-2014-03, "Mechanical Door Failures," in March of 2015, measures were put into place at the Idaho National Laboratory to ensure that employees were not in the direct line of fire in case of door failure. On October 26th, 2015 the measures prevented personnel from being injured when a overhead door sprocket came loose and dropped to the floor. The measures that were put in place, as a result of the operating experience, are credited with the prevention of possible injury to workers who were in the area when the sprocket fell.
