Maintenance should develop and implement comprehensive seasonal transition,
freeze protection, and energy conservation plans developed to address the specific needs
and action schedules to sustain critical areas, buildings, and individual items, as
appropriate. Snow and ice control plans should be implemented as the need arises.
(see DOE-STD-1064-93, "Guideline to Good Practice for Additional Maintenance
Management Requirements at DOE Nuclear Facilities."
Planning for new or expanded facilities should be a long-range project and not done
to address an immediate need.
The process of providing and developing tools and test equipment for the facility
should include considerations of cost control, as well as proper storage and issuance
controls. Craftspersons should be able to readily obtain tools and equipment needed to
perform maintenance and then to return them as soon as practical after completion of
the work. Tools and testing equipment should be kept in a high state of readiness, some
by inclusion in the preventive maintenance program. Proper preventive maintenance
also may result in improved personnel safety and extended life of tools and equipment.
Although the development of new or special tools should be reviewed and approved on
the basis of safety, cost-effectiveness, and future use, the control of the development of
new or special tools should not be so strict that employee innovation is discouraged.
This guideline applies to all maintenance facilities, equipment, and tools under the
control of maintenance organizations in all areas of the facility.
3.3.1 Owner/Operator is responsible for regular evaluation of facilities, equipment, and
tool status, to determine and implement enhancement/improvement opportunities
in a timely manner.
3.3.2 Responsibilities of Individuals
Personnel safety is the responsibility of each individual. Personnel should
immediately report any injury, safety hazard, concern, or violation to their
