Work Planning and Control Assessment at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Worker Safety and Health Assessments, within the independent Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA), conducted an assessment of work planning and control (WP&C) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), which is managed by Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC (LLNS). This assessment, conducted January 27-30 and February 10-13, 2020, evaluated the effectiveness of the implementation of the integrated safety management (ISM) core functions (define scope of work, identify and analyze hazards, identify and implement controls, perform work safely within controls, and feedback and improvement) for activity-level work involving research and maintenance. This assessment also evaluated elements of the electrical safety program, subcontracted construction work, the contractor assurance system (CAS), and the oversight provided by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Livermore Field Office (LFO).
