When an operational event occurs at ORNL, we try ensure that we are maximizing the learning potential across the Laboratory. Sometimes it is difficult to see the event in a broader context that can be translated to other work situations. Therefore, the Office of Integrated Performance Management has developed a Learn and Lead (L2) series of information sheets on significant operational events to help managers, supervisors, and staff discuss these events more effectively.

The attached one page event summary is related to the radiological exposure event in Building 3525 last year. Managers and supervisors are encouraged to use some or all of the information in pre-job briefings, hazard reviews, safety meetings, and during Management Observations.
