Nuclear Safety: Department of Energy Needs to Strengthen Its Independent Oversight of Nuclear Facilities and Operations
Gene L. Dodaro (au)
The Dept. of Energy (DoE) oversees contractors that operate more than 200 "high-hazard" nuclear facilities, where an accident could have serious consequences for workers and the public. DoE is charged with regulating the safety of these facilities. A key part of DoE's self-regulation is the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), which develops, oversees, and helps enforce nuclear safety policies. This is the only DoE safety office intended to be independent of the program offices, which carry out mission responsibilities. This report examines: (1) the extent to which HSS meets elements of effective independent nuclear safety oversight; and (2) the factors contributing to any identified shortcomings with respect to these elements.
