Description. These IAEA guidelines on industrial safety for nuclear facilities are co-sponsored by the International Labour Organization. Specific review of industrial safety practices at nuclear plants have been part of the IAEA OSART (Operational Safety Review Team) missions for decades, and supplementary guidance for such reviews has been available since Under existing law, DOE regulates worker safety and health of contractor employees by implementing the DOE Worker Safety and Health Program (10 CFR Part ()) at its facilities which are operated under the authority of sections (i)(3) and C of the Atomic Energy Act of (AEA, 42 U.S.C.

Worker safety at DOE nuclear sites: Hearing before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy Author: United States. The decommissioning of former defense nuclear facilities has reduced the risk of radioactive material contamination and exposure to the public and site workers. In general, efforts to perform decommissioning work at DOE defense nuclear sites have been successful, and contractors performing decommissioning work have a good safety record. Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (DNFSB) Recommendation (''Quality Assurance for Safety-Related Software'') identified a number of quality assurance issues on the use of software in Department of Energy (DOE) facilities for analyzing hazards, and designing and operating controls to prevent or mitigate potential accidents.
