1. Cultivating a Safety Culture within a Creative Environment Frances Alston Manager, Environmental, Safety & Waste Management

2. 2 Discussion Outline SRNL – Who are we? SRNL culture Diverse Innovative Overview of safety programs Other safety practices and committees Safety statistics

3. 3 DOE- EM Corporate Lab

4. 4

5. 5 SRNL Staff SRNL’s staff - over 900 Research staff of over 700 includes Materials scientists Chemists Physicists Biologists Engineers Technicians.

6. 6 SRNL Staff Research Support/Operating Staff of 200 includes Engineering Maintenance Operations ESH Quality Assurance

9. 9 Methods Used to Facilitate an Exemplary Safety Culture Conduct of Research and Development Assisted Hazard Analysis SRNL Operations Council Local Safety Improvement Team Behavior Based Safety

10. 10 Methods Used to Facilitate an Exemplary Safety Culture - Conduct of R&D Conduct of Research and Development Roadmap for applying safety requirements to R&D work Consistent with DOE ISM process Component of WSRC ISM Description Provides consistent approach to hazard identification and control

11. 11 Assisted Hazard Analysis (AHA) Assisted Hazard Analysis is a disciplined, comprehensive software program. It includes structured questions to help users identify hazards and controls associated with assigned work. Assisted Hazard Analysis integrates diverse, independent processes into a "one stop" process with linkages to procedures, forms, permits, checklists, lessons learned and even subject matter experts, when required.

12. 12 Operations Council SRNL Operations Council Committees Chemical Safety Glovebox Conduct of R&D Board Radiological Work Practices Electrical Safety Research & Development Work Planning and Control

13. 13 Operations Council - Committees Chemical Safety committee Established to get R&D involved with Subject Matter Experts (SME) Purpose of the committee is to improve Chemical Safety within the laboratory environment Procedure development Training development Glovebox committee Established to provide technical and operations oversight for glove box requirements to ensure safe operations and compliance with codes, standards, orders, and accepted industry practices Training development

14. 14 Operations Council - Committees Conduct of Research and Development Board Established to serve as the centralized method to perform hazard analysis associated with scientific investigations within a research environment Implements the principles of ISM within SRNL Radiological Work Practices Committee Provides cohesive approach to policies and practices governing radiological work Radiological practices policy setting Training Assessment of radiological work and work practices

15. 15 Operations Council - Committees Electrical Safety Committee Resolution of R&D electrical issues Recommends electrical safety policies Review incidents and recommends lesson learned Training/qualification Research & Development Work Planning and Control Committee Work polices development Interface with the Conduct of Research and Development Board for ISMS policies and procedures Provides recommendations for SRNL senior staff on R&D Work Planning and control issues

16. 16 Local Safety Improvement Team (LSIT) Local Safety Improvement Team (LSIT) 22 Department Representatives 1 Management Champion 1 Management Sponsor Implementation through Team Charter Implements Behavior Based Safety LSIT Teams Data Administration Communications Training Strategic Planning Membership

17. 17 BBS Observation Statistics BBS STORE started in April 2007 and ran through September 2007 100% CHALLENGE started in June 2007 and ran through August 2007 During Sept o6 we has 351 observers compared to 542 observers for Sept 07. This is significant or important because we have more employees scrutinizing or observing work to ensure safety. During the initiatives (April to September ’07) we added 40% number of observers to our observer pool.
