D. Policy Statement

  1. Reporting Injuries
    1. Berkeley Lab reviews all work-related injuries and illnesses to understand what caused them and to develop controls to prevent them from recurring.
    2. All work-related injuries and illnesses must be reported to Health Services.
    3. Various radiological incidents, chemical exposures, and environmental releases also require reporting and analysis. Consult with your Division Safety Coordinator, Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) Division Liaison, or Health and Safety Representative for appropriate procedures in specific cases.
  2. Investigation and Determination of Causes
    1. The Injury Review Program collaborates with Division Safety Coordinators to tailor the most effective investigative approach for each case and oversees the investigation and analysis process.
    2. The Incident Investigator ensures that appropriate causal analysis is conducted to determine direct, contributing, and root causes of the incident in accordance with the Causal Analysis Program Manual (PUB-5519[2]).
  3. Corrective Actions. Once causes have been determined and controls to prevent recurrence identified and recommended, division line management follows the process described in the Issues Management Program Manual (PUB-5519[1]).
  4. Reports and Documentation. The assigned Injury Review team prepares the injury investigation report. The report will:
    1. Satisfy the content requirements of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Form 5484.3 (Individual Accident/Incident Report).
    2. Describe the activity and events leading up to the incident.
    3. Describe any apparent, direct, contributing, or root causes.
    4. Describe controls that effectively prevent recurrence.
