Hoisting and Rigging (Formerly Hoisting and Rigging Manual) by Technical Standards Program — last modified Feb 28, 2017 02:40 PM
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Hoisting and Rigging Standard is intended as a reference document to be used by supervisors, line managers, safety personnel, equipment operators, and any other personnel responsible for safety of hoisting and rigging operations at DOE sites. The standard quotes verbatim or paraphrases (with minor editorial changes for consistency) the requirements of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). It also encompasses, under one cover, hoisting and rigging requirements, codes, standards, and regulations, eliminating the need to maintain extensive (and often incomplete) libraries of hoisting and rigging standards throughout DOE.

Radiological Control by Technical Standards Program — last modified Mar 02, 2017 12:33 PM
This Standard supplements the DOE G 441.1-1C Guide and serves as a secondary source of guidance for achieving compliance with 10 CFR 835. While there is significant overlap between the DOE G 441.1-1C Guide and this Standard, this Standard differs from the Guide in both intent and detail. In contrast to the macroscopic view adopted by the Guide, this Standard discusses specific measures that should be implemented by affected line managers, workers, and support staff to ensure proper fulfillment of their radiological control responsibilities. DOE expects that each site will identify the provisions of this Standard that support its efforts to implement an effective radiological control program and incorporate these provisions, as appropriate, into the site-specific radiological control manual, site procedures, training, or other administrative instruments that are used to guide employee activities. The specific administrative instruments used at DOE sites vary widely, as would be expected given the varying nature of DOE facilities and activities and their associated hazards.

Training Program Handbook: A Systematic Approach to Training by Brendan Burns — last modified Jul 12, 2018 11:38 AM
This Department of Energy (DOE) Handbook, DOE-HDBK-1078-94, Training Program Handbook: A Systematic Approach to Training, describes a systematic method for establishing and maintaining training programs that meet the requirements and expectations of DOE Orders DOE O 426.2, Personnel Selection, Training, Qualification, and Certification Requirements for DOE Nuclear Facilities and DOE O 426.1, Federal Technical Capability. This Handbook contains no requirements. The systematic approach to training (SAT) includes five distinct, yet interrelated, phases. These phases include analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. SAT is consistent with other systematically based training systems such as performance-based training (PBT), training system development (TSD), instructional systems development (ISD), and other similar methods. For the purposes of this Handbook, SAT and PBT are interchangeable. The systematic approach method may also be used in conjunction with other DOE orders and directives that contain personnel training and qualification requirements.
