Examples of leadership and management problems that have resulted in occurrence
reports such as excessive personnel radiation exposures caused by inadequate work
practices, an inadvertent introduction of hydrogen in the instrument and facility air
systems, or extremity overexposure during system or compartment closeout
Suggested Learning Activities:
Review and discuss, with an emphasis on recognition of hazards,
potential personnel injury hazards, facility radiological hazards,
responsibilities of shift supervisor, preventive measures, and reasons for
safety programs (i.e., potential consequences to employees and the
company) with the facility safety coordinator or other individual
knowledgeable of industrial safety practices.
Perform a structured exercise (observation) with a discussion on the
results of the observation, including application of observation skills.
Use a case-study approach to industrial accidents, including a
discussion of accidents and injuries that have occurred at the facility, (if
possible), and how they could have been prevented. Use of accident
and injury reports that describe undesirable trends and the operating
experience listed in occurrence reports can be used to support this
Suggested Evaluation Activities:
Conduct a qualitative evaluation of trainee responses and discussions.
Review of the product resulting from the observation.
Review products derived by trainees during the case study.
