Lessons Learned Emergency Management Programs

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environment, Safety and Health Assessments, within the independent Office of Enterprise Assessments, conducted emergency management program assessments at three DOE sites during calendar year 2018. The sites, selected based on risk, are under the direction of the National Nuclear Security Administration and the Office of Environmental Management. The objective of each assessment was to determine the effectiveness of emergency management programs. This report focuses on issues affecting multiple sites and identifies strengths and weaknesses, best practices, and recommendations, with the goal of promoting organizational learning and improving performance throughout the DOE complex.
