Integrated Safety Management System Phase I Verification Objectives
Business, Budget, and Contracts (Program Management) (BBC)
BBC.1 DOE and contractor procedures ensure that missions are translated into work,
expectations are set, tasks are identified and prioritized, and resources allocated.
BBC.2 DOE and contractor budgeting and resource assignment procedures include a
process to ensure the application of balanced priorities. Resources are allocated to
address safety, programmatic, and operational considerations. Protecting the public,
workers, and the environment is a priority whenever activities are planned and
BBC.3 The contractor procedures and practices ensure that personnel who define the
scope of work and allocate resources have competence that is commensurate with the
Department of Energy (DOE)
DOE.1 DOE has established processes that interface efficiently and effectively with the
contractor's organization to ensure that work is performed safely.
DOE.2 DOE has established processes that interface efficiently and effectively with the
contractor's organization to provide feedback and continuous improvement. Feedback
information on the adequacy of controls is gathered, opportunities for improving the
definition and planning of work are identified and implemented, line and independent
oversight is conducted, and, if necessary, regulatory enforcement actions occur.
Hazards Identification and Standard Selection (HAZ)
HAZ.1 Hazards associated with the work are identified, analyzed, and categorized.
HAZ.2 Applicable standards and requirements are identified and agreed-upon.
HAZ.3 Contractor procedures ensure that contractor personnel responsible for
analyzing the hazards and developing, reviewing, or implementing the controls, have
competence that is commensurate with their responsibilities. DOE roles and
responsibilities are clearly defined to ensure appropriate oversight and review of the
analysis of hazards and the identification of controls. Personnel shall possess the
experience, knowledge, skills and abilities that are necessary to discharge their
