U.S. Defense Dept. Says KBR and Military Failed to Protect Servicemen at Qarmat Ali

The United States Department of Defense released a report on September 28, 2011, confirming that KBR failed to act to protect servicemen from exposure to sodium dichromate (hexavalent chromium) while they were guarding KBR’s Qarmat Ali water treatment plant in Iraq.  The report faulted the U.S. military as well for a failure to closely monitor KBR’s compliance with its military contract.  KBR, the report found, did not comply with health and safety compliance provisions of its military contract.

Because of KBR’s actions, servicemen from the U.S. National Guard and British Royal Air Force were exposed to the carcinogen sodium dichromate.  Doyle Raizner is among the team of attorneys representing the servicemen against KBR in lawsuits pending in Oregon and Texas.
