6 / / DOE Sites Across the US
6 / / Office of Health, Safety and Securitys Mission The Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS) is DOEs central organization responsible for health, safety, and security providing corporate-level leadership and strategic vision to coordinate and integrate these activities. HSS is responsible for policy development, technical assistance, safety analysis, corporate safety and security programs, education and training, DOE-wide independent oversight, and enforcement. The Chief Health, Safety and Security Officer advises the Secretary and the Deputy Secretary on all matters related to health, safety, and security across the complex. HSS provides clear policy guidance, assistance in policy implementation, and a focused and integrated corporate-level analysis of Departmental operating experience that identifies existing and potential problem areas to provide line managers with a solid foundation for implementing effective Department-wide activities and solutions in the areas of health, safety, [environment] and security.
6 / / DOEs Corporate Operating Experience Program The Department of Energy's (DOE) Corporate Operating Experience Program (OE) - Helps prevent the recurrence of significant adverse events/trends by sharing performance information, lessons learned and good practices across the DOE complex. A DOE Directive, DOE Order 210.2, DOE Corporate Operating Experience Program, was issued on June 12, Its purpose is: To institute a Department of Energy (DOE) wide program for the management of operating experience to prevent adverse operating incidents and to expand the sharing of good work practices among DOE sites.
6 / / To provide the systematic review, identification, collection, screening, evaluation, and dissemination of operating experience from U.S. and foreign government agencies and industry, professional societies, trade associations, national academies, universities, and DOE and its contractors. To reinforce the core functions and guiding principles of DOEs Integrated Safety Management (ISM) to enhance mission safety and reliability. Order Objectives ISM Core Functions
6 / / Order Objectives (contd) Summary: To combine the disparate operating experience (OE) elements into one program that includes requirements for event reporting, safety related statistics, and lessons learned. The Requirements of the Directive include DOE entities, contractors, and subcontractors.
6 / / Order Requirements Prescribe a Formal Process that: Evaluates DOE Internal and External Operating Experiences (OE) to assess trends, safety, and program issues and to promote sharing of Good Work Practices that may affect safety and success of DOE missions OE Clearing House Function: collection, storage, retrieval OE Screened for Significance – by all stakeholders Timely Communication of Screening Results and Insights DOE Corporate Communication thru Actionable or Informational Products Effectiveness Evaluated thru Periodic Safety Meetings and Metrics

6 / / Operating Experience Committee (OEC) The purpose of the Department of Energy (DOE) Operating Experience Committee (OEC) is to support line management within DOE and the DOE community in developing and sustaining effective operating experience programs so that lessons from internal and external operating experience lead to improvement in future operational and safety performance. The OEC will facilitate management and worker communications to promote the sharing of operating experiences and associated best practices for using operating experience to improve future performance.
The DOE Operating Experience Committee has been chartered as a subgroup of the Integrated Safety Management (ISM) Champions Council: To strengthen the feedback and improvement of the ISM core function and To provide increased Federal leadership and involvement in the review of operating experience. In order to realize the benefits of learning from external operating experience, the OEC will open its membership to other government agencies, contractors, and private sector companies and individuals. The OEC currently consists of almost 300 members, within DOE and external to DOE (both domestic and foreign). 6 / / Operating Experience Committee (OEC) (contd)
6 / / Designated members of the Committee consist of: (1) the designated DOE and Contractor Operating Experience Program Coordinators (as defined in DOE O 210.2), (2) the Director, Office of Analysis within DOEs Office of Health, Safety and Security, and (3) Chief of Nuclear Safety (CNS) and Chief of Defense Nuclear Safety (CDNS), or their designated representatives. Associate membership in the Committee is open to: All DOE federal and contractor employees, as well as to external domestic and international representatives interested in sharing operating experiences and associated best practices. Operating Experience Committee (OEC) (contd)
6 / / Activities include: Semi-Annual Meetings across the DOE complex. Monthly conference calls. Task Team activities. Development of new OE sharing techniques (SharePoint, Wiki, Blogs). Current Task Teams are: Metrics/Program Effectiveness Tools/Resources External Events Criteria Review and Approach Document (CRADs) to Assess DOE Order Implementation Qualification Standards for OE/Lessons Learned Coordinators Procedures Operating Experience Committee (OEC) (contd)

Future Enhancements – We plan to add a lot more operating experience information to this Wiki. One near term enhancement will be to add event and training videos.
6 / / OE Wiki with OEC Conference Call Info
6 / / Questions to Consider What information do you call operating experience (OE) and what OE do you share (within your organization and external)? How can we obtain OE information from you? We are looking for high value OE, not high quantity: Accident Investigations Event/Training Videos Operating Experience Articles Alerts Suspect Counterfeit and Defective Items (SCI/DI) How do you measure OE effectiveness? Do you evaluate / use external OE? How is SCI / DI managed? How do you or your managers approach risk management?
