Office of Environment, Safety and Health Assessments Protocol, Development and Maintenance of Criteria Review and Approach Documents, June 2014

June 2014

Protocol for the Development and Maintenance of Criteria Review and Approach Documents

The purpose of this protocol is to establish the requirements and responsibilities for the development and maintenance of criteria review and approach documents (CRADs) used by the Office of Environment, Safety and Health Assessments (EA-30). The EA-30 CRADs are carefully selected, modified (if required), and referenced in review plans for the Office of Nuclear Safety and Environmental Assessments, Office of Worker Safety and Health Assessments, and the Office of Emergency Management Assessments. These plans are used to provide an outline of the activities planned to assess the effectiveness of safety and emergency management processes and practices used by line management and contractor organizations, as well as to evaluate their performance in protecting our workers, the public, and the environment from the hazards associated with U.S. Department of Energy activities and sites.
