b) Evaluations of Equipment and Tool Status
DOE-STD-1069-93, "Guideline to Good Practices for Maintenance Tools and
Equipment Control at DOE Nuclear Facilities" provides additional information
concerning equipment and tools.
Parameters which should be considered when evaluating equipment and tool
status include the following:
accountability (inventory, responsibility, status)
stationary vs. portable
craft specialized vs. general application
new technology vs. new application of existing item
quantity required for work-force access
Where vendors have indicated special handling and storage requirements,
those requirements should be satisfied to ensure that integrity is maintained.
