Charge question

Charge Question

Are construction efforts being executed safely?


Ongoing safety efforts

Ongoing Safety Efforts

  • ES&H subject matter experts are assigned to provide support and oversight to NSTX-U.

    • Health Physics (HP) Coordinator (P. Bruno)

    • Health Physics (HP) Representative (HP technician)

    • Industrial Hygiene (IH) Representative (W. Slavin)

    • Construction Safety Representative (M. Schaefer)

  • •Additional oversight/support provided by IH and Electrical Safety professionals.


Ongoing safety efforts1

Ongoing Safety Efforts

Safety & Health Physics professionals:

  • Participate in plan-of-the day (8:00 AM) meetings (as does ESH&S Department Head).

  • Participate in pre-job briefings where the Job Hazard Analyses (JHA’s) and Radiation Work Permits (RWPs) are reviewed by workers (part of Work Control Process).

  • Do regular field walkdowns to assess safety of ongoing work & engage workers and supervisors as needed.

  • Provide guidance on specific safety issues, e.g., ergonomics, ventilation of VPI gases, noise mitigation, fall protection, etc.

Supervisors conduct STOP observations to engage workers and encourage safe behaviors.


Ongoing safety efforts2

Ongoing Safety Efforts

  • NSTX-U safety record has been excellent.

    • -No DART cases to date.

    • -Several strain injury cases due to work in awkward positions, including 1 recordable case. Increased efforts to rotate workers and enforce work breaks. No further cases since March ‘13.

    • -No significant radiological exposures or uptakes.


Ongoing safety efforts3

Ongoing Safety Efforts

  • Joint internal/external team evaluated the effectiveness of PPPL’s skid steer event corrective actions on Aug. 19-23. They concluded:

    • -Corrective actions for the Skid-steer accident have been implemented as intended.

    • -Implementation effectively addresses the root causes and Judgments of Need.

    • -Corrective actions are likely to be sustainable.

    • -Corrective actions represent an institutional and holistic approach for safe and effective practices.

    • -New/revised procedures/standards/practices are consistent with OSHA/DOE, understood & consistently practiced.

    • -.


Summary

Summary

Trained, experienced and engaged workers and supervisors using well-developed work planning & control processes, combined with support and oversight of ES&H professionals are assuring that NSTX-U construction is being executed safely.
