10 CFR 851 Worker Safety and Health Program

Office of Health and Safety: Establishes worker safety and health requirements and expectations for the Department to ensure protection of workers from the hazards associated with Department operations.

The 10 C.F.R. 851 Work Group is established to promote excellence in the implementation of 10 C.F.R. 851, "Worker Safety and Health" and continuous improvement in the implementation of health and safety programs for the DOE contractor work force. The Work Group provides a collaborative opportunity for DOE to gain insights from the contractor work force and their representatives, and identify and communicate best practices. Focal areas of interest include hazard identification, worker knowledge of aging infrastructure, advancing best practices, establishing accountability vertically through the line, and discharging DOE's duties as a self-regulated entity.
