Review of the Hanford Tank Farms Safety Management Program Implementation for Hoisting and Rigging

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Enforcement and Oversight (Independent Oversight), within the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), conducted an independent review of the implementation of the safety management program (SMP) for hoisting and rigging at the Hanford Site Tank Farms on June 18 and during July 29-31, 2013. The HSS Office of Safety and Emergency Management Evaluations performed the review to assess the effectiveness of management programs that ensure the safety of workers, the public, and the environment.  Independent Oversight’s review was performed concurrently with the review conducted by the Office of River Protection. This Independent Oversight review was conducted within the broader context of ongoing reviews of SMPs at DOE sites with hazard category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities.
