    • Offer high-value services / tools
    • Monitor effectiveness and results
how we make compliance transparent
How we…make compliance transparent
  • No separate requirements / procedures for LLs
  • DOE 210.2 requirements built into Lab processes –
    • Event reporting
    • Issue management
    • Recalls (SCI / defective items / safety alerts)
  • Cognizant SMEs review each LL before publishing
  • LLs incorporated into Lab processes / systems
    • Training (hazards, PM, security, travel, etc.)
    • Policies/requirements
    • Event reporting, issue management
  • LLs disseminated through multiple channels
    • Line manager Central (new website portal)
    • Weekly PNNL newsletter
    • Targeted distributions

How we…focus on readers
  • Relevant to their jobs
  • Well-written and easy to understand –
    • right balance of details
    • sufficient business context

    • Quick-read Summary (reusable content element)
    • Reference Lab process - link to PNNL online policy/req’ts
    • Address LL points to targeted PNNL roles
  • Announce a new LL each week in PNNL newsletter
  • Easy website navigation / access tools

How we work…offer contemporary services / tools to help managers leverage LLs for greater staff value
  • Treat LL development process as a partnership with shared goals –
    • Team with requesting manager – hold scoping meeting to discuss facts, key staff messages, applicable Lab reqts
    • Discuss how LL can help manager reinforce expectations of safety, quality, performance culture and “right” behaviors (e.g. “unexpected eruption”)
    • Cover timely business issues for target audiences – e.g., PMs, MSOs-- not addressed elsewhere
    • Assure LL is valuable / actionable for their staff (e.g., “avoiding pitfalls that lead to cost overruns”)
    • Maximize LL for reuse in training, as reading assignments, future access by other staff / projects


contemporary services tools cont
Contemporary services / tools cont.
  • Stay service-based, friendly, hassle-free for staff
    • Search services – help staff locate relevant LLs for their work
    • Dynamic website – easy tools to search, find ‘related articles,’ share, comment, rate, tag, etc. (future ‘quick-add wiki tool, more videos)
    • Provide LL views by – Hall of Fame, highest rated, good practices, most discussed, most viewed, most recent
    • Variety of topics covering Lab business areas
    • Use LLs to highlight correct staff actions (e.g., researcher identifies over-pressurization hazard in vendor equipment)
    • Include links to Lab process / procedure steps and other resources
