significant factor, along with cost, quality and time. The reasoning used to select
the subcontractor must be documented.
Safety and Health Rating System
A subcontractor safety and health rating system should be developed to help in
evaluating the subcontractor's ability to safely perform the specified work.
D. Pre-Job Safety and Health Meeting
Discussion of Specific Safety and Health Requirements
GOCO facility management shall specifically discuss safety, unusual hazards,
training, documentation, and permit requirements with the subcontractor's site
management personnel, who will be directly responsible for supervising the
Verifying Training Requirements
The DOE contractor management shall review subcontractor certifications for
required training based on criteria set forth in the Pre-bid section. Safety and
health training for subcontractor employees can be divided into three components.
Basic job skills training: the skills required to perform a specific task.
Basic job safety and health training: the skills necessary to safely perform the
task no matter where it may be performed.
Plant-specific safety and health training: the skills necessary to safely perform
a task at a specific plant site.
The first two components are the responsibility of the subcontractor and the third
is the responsibility of the DOE contractor. To fulfill the obligations of the first
two training components, the subcontractor shall be requested to define the
training needed to satisfy these components, provide the training, and certify that
the training has occurred, enabling their respective workers to safely perform their
assigned duties. The subcontractor will not be able to start on the project until
these training requirements are met. Also, arrangements will be made with the
subcontractor to schedule the safety orientation that covers plant-specific safety
and health training.
Subcontractor Safety Orientation
Before work begins, all subcontractor personnel, including supervisors and managers,
shall receive the GOCO facility's safety and health orientation. Where this training is not
provided by the DOE contractor, management will ensure that it is conducted and covers
the same site-specific safety and health material that GOCO facility employees receive at
their new hire orientation. Training content and attendance must be documented.
