March 2012

Review of the Los Alamos Site Office Safety System Oversight Program Self-Assessment

The Office of Enforcement and Oversight (Independent Oversight), within the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), conducted an independent review of the Los Alamos Site Office (LASO) safety system oversight (SSO) program in conjunction with a scheduled LASO self-assessment. The purpose of the LASO self-assessment was to evaluate the SSO program’s compliance with U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) orders and standards, and National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and LASO directives and procedures. The self-assessment was conducted December 5-9, 2011.

Overall, the LASO self-assessment was competently performed by knowledgeable, experienced personnel using appropriate criteria based on the LASO SSO Program Implementation Assessment Criteria Review and Approach Document, Revision 0, and the final report accurately reflects the results of the assessment.
