Natural Phenomena Hazards Overview

The Department of Energy (DOE) Natural Phenomena Hazards Program develops and maintains state-of-the-art program standards and guidance for DOE facilities exposed to natural phenomena hazards (NPHs). This program applies to both conventional, nuclear hazard category 1, 2, and 3, and radiological facilities. Direction and guidance is given for seismic, extreme wind, tornado, precipitation, flood, volcanic ashfall and lightening threats. This program also provides assistance, training, communications, and support to facilitate effective implementation of DOE’s NPH standards to assure public and worker health and safety.
