Relating to Other Programs

The system of integrated safety and environmental management means that ISEMS in every program and policy we have here at SLAC.  We integrate it into everything we do.  However, there are some programs that more directly than others support the steps of ISEMS and help us to figure out our steps of work.

In addition to those listed below, Chapters 1 and 2 of the ESH Manual, General Policies & Responsibilities and Work Planning & Control, should be reviewed as they specify individual roles & responsibilities in all areas of work for esh topics.


Program Aids

How it's Used

1. Define scope ESH Manual The ESH Manual is divided into specific topic areas and defines policies for them.  Checking this guidance to see what policies we might have to follow, or recommended procedures to use, will help make our scope more clear.  It will also save time in 2 and 3 below if these are checked first.
2. Analyze hazards ESH Manual If our work falls into specific topic categories, the ESH Manual Chapters can help find out common hazards for the topics.
Work Planning and Control The Work Planning and Control Program is a direct link to this step.  In this program, there are examples of hazard types and forms for employees (ATAs) and subcontractors to help identify the hazards in specific jobs and steps.  Using the AHA Library also assists in finding out if the area we'll be working in has hazards already identified. 
Lessons Learned Inside the Contractor Assurance and Contract Management group, this program looks at time when planning or tools didn't work so well, and figures out ideas on making them better.  Using examples from SLAC, other DOE labs, and the local area, there are several topics covered and ideas gathered.  When analyzing hazards, sometimes it helps to see what didn't work first - we may not have thought of something as a hazard until we see that it's happened to somebody else first.
3. Control for hazards ESH Manual Some topics have recommended procedures for controlling hazards.
Lessons Learned Some Lessons Learned also provide an analysis of better ways of controlling the hazards in the future.
SLAC Training Reviewing the Course Catalog and using the SLAC Training Assessment is a tool to help find out what training is needed for jobs and people.  Training is considered to be a hazard control method.
4. Perform work ATA Activity & Training Authorizations (ATAs) in the Work Planning and Control (WPC) program provide a mechanism to define specific activities that a worker is qualified and authorized to perform.
5. Feedback and Improvement Performance Evaluations
(link to HR tools)
A program through Human Resources, performance evaluations annually review our work and give us feedback on how we're doing.  This program should be considered broad-scope, however, and each job should do individual feedback and improvement sessions.
