Summary Pamphlet, Nuclear Safety at the Department of Energy

September 2010

This pamphlet is developed as part of the Office of Health, Safety and Security’s (HSS) outreach and awareness campaign to proactively advance safe execution of the DOE mission. It is intended to provide an abbreviated summary of regulatory requirements and processes for ensuring nuclear safety at DOE, which serve as the Department’s overarching regulatory framework for nuclear safety.

The safety of workers and safe execution of the DOE mission are DOE line management’s responsibility. However, its ultimate success depends greatly on the collective and informed collaboration of many stakeholders, including DOE Headquarters; Field Offices; safety, environment, health, and security professionals; Federal and contractor organizations; and workers.
