The Office of Health Safety and Security (HSS) National Training Center (NTC) in collaboration with the HSS Accident Investigation Program (HS-24) has developed and released a course that provides an overview of the fundamentals of accident investigation.
This course is intended to meet the every five year refresher training requirement for DOE Federal Accident Investigators under DOE Order 225.1B “Accident Investigations”, and serves as an orientation to other DOE Federal Accident Investigation Board Members who need a basic knowledge of AI. Persons who had taken Accident Investigation Training prior to October 1, 2008 should now complete SAF230DE.
The course also serves as an orientation for non-Federal Contractors who are either conducting site level accident investigations, or supporting DOE Federal Accident Investigation Boards. The course reviews the concepts contained in the DOE-HDBK-1208-2012 Accident Investigation and Prevention Volume 1 - Accident Analysis Techniques.
