How Dangerous is it to be a DBA worker for EG&G Technical Service / URS Federal Technical Services, Inc.?


“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S. I want it straight up, with no double talk. I figure do also. I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating no B.S lawyer talk, and no double talk- just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth-just the way that I would want it.” -Bill Turley

EG&G Technical Service

In December 2009 URS announced its decision to discontinue the use of EG&G as a division name. The headquarters issued a press release which stated that by 1 January 2010 it would discontinue using secondary corporate brands, including the EG&G name and logo. In the same press release, URS stated that it would also retire other acquired brands, Washington Group and Lear Siegler. However, EG&G Division will become URS Federal Services.

URS Federal Services

According to their website, URS Corporation is a leading provider of engineering, construction and technical services for public agencies and private sector companies around the world. The Company offers a full range of program management; planning, design and engineering; systems engineering and technical assistance; construction and construction management; operations and maintenance; and decommissioning and closure services for power, infrastructure, industrial and commercial, and federal projects and programs.

According to Bloomberg

According to Bloomberg, URS Federal Technical Services, Inc. provides technical services for the U.S. Department of Defense systems. Its services include acquisition support for new defense systems; engineering and technical assistance for modernization programs; maintenance planning; and quality assurance, training, and start-up. The company assists the Marine Corps' joint mine resistant ambush protected vehicle program for acquiring, fielding, and sustaining a fleet of light trucks designed to deflect bomb blasts and small arms fire, as well as performs studies and analysis, systems modification, and logistics support for government aircraft, tracked and wheeled vehicles, shelters, and ground-support equipment. It also provides engineering and technical support for combat systems; program management, engineering, and logistics support for the U.S. Marine Corps; and operation and training services for the Army's lightweight integrated telecommunications equipment. The company was formerly known as EG&G Technical Services, Inc. and changed its name to URS Federal Technical Services, Inc. in May 2010.

How Dangerous is it to be a DBA worker for EG&G Technical Service (now called URS Federal Technical Services, Inc.)?

According to the United States Department of Labor statistics, working for EG&G Technical Service is very dangerous. How dangerous? EG&G Technical Service is number two in overall DBA injury claims. Since 2001, there have been 5,502 DBA injury claims by EG&G Technical Service employees.

However, EG&G Technical Service is the only DBA contractor in the top 6 in total Defense Base Act injury claims that did not report any deaths. Which quite frankly, does not appear credible. The other top 6 in DBA claims reported between 125 deaths and 20 deaths during the same time period.

Of course, these statistics are misleading and have been under attack. It is well known that injuries and deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan have been severely under reported by both the US Military and DBA civilian contractors.

For example, the Department of Labor readily admits that these statistics are allegedly reported claims. There are thousands of either unreported claims and denied claims which are largely uncounted for in the statistics.

In summary, the Department of Labor statistics are believed to be the "tip of the iceberg." And working for EG&G Technical Service is extremely dangerous.
