Occurrence Reporting and Processing System

The Department of Energy's Occurrence Reporting Program provides timely notification to the DOE complex of events that could adversely affect: public or DOE worker health and safety, the environment, national security, DOE's safeguards and security interests, functioning of DOE facilities, or the Department's reputation.

DOE analyzes aggregate occurrence information for generic implications and operational improvements. The Occurrence Reporting Program directives are DOE Order 232.2, Occurrence Reporting and Processing of Operations Information, and DOE Standard DOE-STD-1197-2011, Occurrence Reporting Causal Analysis. Contact Ashley Ruocco for information and assistance on policy and requirements concerning Occurrence Reporting and Processing of Operations Information (DOE O 232.2) and the ORPS database. Contact Glenn Searfoss for information on ORPS daily reporting, and analysis of ORPS information.

The Occurrence Reporting and Processing System (ORPS), previously was described in DOE O 231.1A, Environment, Safety and Health Reporting, and its associated Manual, DOE M 231.1-2, Occurrence Reporting and Processing of Operations Information.

Daily Occurrence Reports

The Department of Energy is committed to ensuring that the safety and health of its workers is the number one priority. To fulfill that commitment, DOE is posting daily a summary and listing of occurrence reports submitted to DOE. This posting of occurrence reports will contain reports that were transmitted since the morning of the previous workday. The summary will provide a brief description of each occurrence along with the facility's organizational information and the title of the report. For those that desire additional information, the listing will contain the full occurrence reports.
