Lessons Learned from Assessments of Occupational Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting at U.S. Department of Energy Sites

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environment, Safety and Health Assessments, within the independent Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA), conducted occupational injury and illness (OII) recordkeeping and reporting program assessments at four DOE sites between 2017 and 2018. The sites, selected to provide a cross-sectional view of programs across various missions and worker populations, are under the direction of the DOE Office of Environmental Management or the National Nuclear Security Administration. The objective of these assessments was to determine the effectiveness of OII recordkeeping programs and DOE field element oversight of contractor OII recordkeeping programs. This lessons-learned report identifies strengths and weaknesses, best practices, and recommendations, with the goal of promoting organizational learning and improving performance throughout the DOE complex.
