This DOE Accident Investigation Report addresses three injuries that occurred on in 2006 during the annual Security Protective Officer Training Competition at the National Training Center. One individual required hospitalization for more than a week, much of the time in intensive care. Readers may want to pay particular attention to three issues addressed in the report that have implications for training and safety activities throughout the DOE complex:
The conclusion that Exertional Heat Illness has not been specifically recognized by DOE, nor has information about its potential safety concerns been disseminated throughout DOE.
The need to assure that expertise in exercise physiology is consulted in the planning and implementation of training that involves rigorous physical demands.
The need to assure that the design of training regimens appropriately balances physical rigor with safety of the participants.
