The goal of the Sitewide Standards Organization’s governing document, the Hanford Sitewide Standards Management Plan (MSC-MP-41080), is to have site-wide standards and standardized training where there are similar hazards, requirements, and worker expectations. This effort is directed by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS) in 10 CFR 851.11 of the Worker Safety and Health Program.
Since Hanford Site workers may perform work in facilities controlled by multiple Hanford Site contractors, safety can be improved by having such standards and training in place. The desired outcome of the Plan is to establish site wide standards and standardized training that provides a consistent approach for workers to perform work safely on the Hanford Site.
The process defined in the Plan is designed to achieve collaboration from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), all Affected Contractors, the Hanford Atomic Metal Trades Council (HAMTC), and the Central Washington Building and Construction Trades Council (CWB&CTC) on the Hanford Site.
