Review of the Hanford Site CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company Implementation Verification Review Processes
This report documents the results of an independent review of the implementation verification review (IVR) processes employed by CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company at the Department of Energy's (DOE) Hanford Site. The review was conducted August 13 to 17, 2012, by the DOE Office of Safety and Emergency Management Evaluations, which is within the DOE Office of Health, Safety and Security. The review was carried out within the broader context of an ongoing program of assessments of the execution of IVRs at DOE sites with hazard category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities. The overall purpose of these Independent Oversight reviews is to evaluate the processes and methods used for verifying and re-verifying implementation of new or substantially revised nuclear facility safety basis hazard controls. The objective of this assessment was to evaluate the extent to which the contractor has developed and employed appropriate methods for verifying the proper implementation of safety basis hazard controls.
