Many DOE sites and national laboratories commonly partner with subcontractors for various types of work. It's the responsibility of each site to flow down expectations to subcontractor employees on the safe performance of work, and to provide the accompanying oversight so each worker goes home in the same condition in which they arrived.

In the latter part of 2018, three events occurred at PNNL with commonalities: the work was being performed by subcontractors, hazards were not thoroughly evaluated, and scope changes occurred.

In this nine-minute video, one of the Safe Conduct of Research video series, you'll learn about each of the events and what improvements are being made as a result. You'll also hear from a representative of PNNL's DOE Site Office who discusses the expectations around the world-class standard of care for all those who perform work at a DOE site.
