Berkeley Lab’s ISMS Plan Is Comprehensive
  • Covers All Work at the Berkeley Lab
  • Affords Protection for Workers, the Public, and the Environment
  • Fully Integrated with Business Systems and Normal Work Processes
  • Incorporates Continuous Improvement Through Self-Assessment at All Levels
  • Tailors DOE ISMS Criteria to the Berkeley Lab Culture and Environment

core functions match the roles at three levels
Core Functions Match the Roles at Three Levels
  • Institution
    • Define mission, set policy, develop guidance and site-wide procedures, provide services, assurance of institutional efforts
  • Division/Department
    • Implement programs and activities that incorporate institutional policy and procedures, assurance of division/department efforts
  • Project/Activity
    • Integrate EH&S requirements in work activities

Berkeley Lab Policy and Procedures Manuals

Are Aligned with ISMS and Reflect Core Safety

Functions and Guiding Principles:

  • Vision 2000

“All of our activities will be conducted with full regard for the environment, health, and safety.”

  • PUB-201, Regulations & Procedures Manual

“As a condition of employment, every employee, visiting scientist,

student, or other person performing work at the Laboratory or at

one of the Laboratory's off-site locations must be familiar with and implement applicable Laboratory safety standards.” (7.01B)

participating guests and visitors
Participating Guests and Visitors

RPM 7.01 Health & Safety, B. Responsibilities

“Each Laboratory manageris responsible for ensuring that employees (including matrixed employees — see Paragraph (D) below),participating guests, contractors, students, and visitors under his or her supervision are properly trained in emergency and safety procedures and are provided a safe and healthful working environment, free from undue hazards. In exercising this responsibility, all managers may delegate authority and assign responsibility for a particular operation, but they retain accountability for oversights and errors that lead to injury, illness, environmental pollution, or damage to property within their jurisdictions.”

Berkeley Lab Policy Reflects Guiding Principles
  • PUB-3000, Health & Safety Manual
    • Revised to Reflect WSS & ISMS

“Fundamental to the attainment of ISM are personal commitment and accountability, mutual trust, open communications, continuous improvement, worker involvement, and full participation of all interested parties. To achieve ISM, the Berkeley Lab has adopted the following seven guiding principles, discussed below, which are reflected in the detailed policies and procedures of the Laboratory. In addition, principal investigators, managers, and supervisors are expected to incorporate these principles into the management of their work activities. While these principles apply to all work, the exact implementation of these principles is flexible and can be tailored to the complexity of the work and the severity of the hazards.” (Chapter 1, Sect.1.3 Environment, Safety, and Health (ES&H) Integration)

Policy Applicable to Project or Activity Level

“It is the policy of the Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to provide a safe and healthful working environment for its employees, participating visitors, and other visitors; to prevent any harm to the health and safety of the general public or to the environment as a result of the Laboratory’s activities; and to protect its property from damage or loss due to accidents or other causes.”

(PUB-3000, Chapter 1, 1.2 Policy)

“As part of the work planning process, principal investigators, managers, and supervisors (work leaders) are required to consider what hazards, risks, and concerns are present, and to implementappropriate controls.”

(PUB-3000, Chapter 6, 6.2.1 Work Planning)

Line Management Authorization for All Research Projects

“The processes undertaken to fulfill … requirements are specified in each division’s approved Integrated Safety Management (ISM) plan and implementing procedures. As long as the process and hazards control are routine and conform to the individual division’s ISM Plan, and the individuals are trained as specified, then work is considered to be authorized under that division's self-authorization. Each employee must familiarize himself/herself with the provisions of his/her division’s ISM Plan.”

(PUB-3000, Chapter 6, 6.2.2 Line Management Authorization Process)

project activity review processes facilities projects
Project/Activity Review Processes (Facilities Projects)
  • Work Review
    • 1. Large Projects - each project assigned an EH&S lead and EH&S team appropriate to the hazard
    • 2. Small projects (operational funds/non-cap)– EH&S lead recruits subject matter experts as required
    • 3. Maintenance projects – Planning/review process outlined in Maximo system; Facilities recruits EH&S assistance as required.
    • ALL PROJECTS: Safety is the responsibility of the Facilities Project Manager
tailored approaches for other employment relationships
Tailored Approaches for Other Employment Relationships
  • Participating Guests and Visitors
    • Laboratory host is responsible for assuring full qualifications or for providing escort or supervision by a fully qualified individual
  • Contract Labor
    • Same qualifications as career employees, screening by hiring division or contract labor agency
    • Same EH&S requirements as career employees
    • Included in all corrective actions

Five Strategies for Dealing with Contractors and Guests, Each Tailored for Best Fit:

tailored approaches for contractors
Tailored Approaches for Contractors
  • Construction Contractors
    • Project Work:
      • > $ 50,000 - Safety plans submitted and approved
      • < $ 50,000 - Checklists submitted and approved
      • Frequent job-site surveillance and follow-up
      • Report accidents and hours worked
    • Safety is considered as a component of “best value” when evaluating bids
tailored approaches for contractors29
Tailored Approaches for Contractors
  • Service Contractors with a Major Presence
    • Contractors with 10 or more people on site
    • Submit “Injury and Illness Prevention Plan” for approval
    • Report accidents and hours worked
  • Other Service Contractors
    • Get booklet on entry
    • Follow Lab rules
    • Lab sponsor responsible for:
      • selecting demonstrably competent contractor
      • assuring contractor employees not at risk from Lab operations
      • assuring Lab employees not at risk from contractor operations
service contractors
Service Contractors
  • Fire Extinguisher Servicing
  • Copy Machine Service
  • Scientific Instrument Installation,
  • Calibration, Repair
  • Software Support Vendors
  • Crane and Hoist Maintenance
  • Consultants
  • “Goats-R-Us”
