Independent Activity Report, Los Alamos National Laboratory - August 2011

August 2011

Assessment of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Emergency Management Program Training and Drills Functional Area [HIAR-LANL-2011-08-04]

Since the 2007 Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS) inspection of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) emergency management program, HSS personnel have conducted periodic visits to follow-up on the corrective actions taken to address the findings in the review. This 2011 assessment was conducted to continue the corrective action follow-up activities and to support the Los Alamos Site Office (LASO) Emergency Management Program Manager in accomplishing the required triennial functional area assessment.

LANL’s actions to address previous HSS and LASO findings and the associated corrective actions pertaining to training and drills for emergency response organization (ERO) members have resulted in significant improvements in the ERO training program (particularly for core emergency operations center staff members). LANL completed all of the corrective actions identified in the corrective action plan for the 2007 HSS inspection.
