PURPOSE                    This procedure provides a process for establishment of a graded approach to
                           systematically review planned work to identify the associated hazards,
                           significant environmental aspects, and preventive measures to control those
                           hazards and aspects for protection of personnel, the public, and the
                           environment. Refer to Attachment A for the definition of “hazards”.
                           The primary means of communicating specific hazards and controls critical to
                           safe performance of work in the field is the work control process. The hazard
                           assessment process is a key function of work control and requires worker input
                           to ensure its success. Worker involvement in the hazard assessment process
                           assures that hazards are identified by workers who will perform the work, and
                           that controls to mitigate the hazards are tailored to the work at the activity level.

SCOPE                      This procedure applies to all Bechtel Jacobs Company LLC (BJC) self-
                           performed and subcontractor work activities at all tiers supporting the BJC
                           scope of work.

                           For work involving nuclear criticality/facility safety hazards and Safety Basis
                           Documentation, refer to BJC-NS-1003, Nuclear Criticality Safety Program;
                           BJC-NS-1001, Unreviewed Safety Question Determinations for Nuclear
                           Category 2 & 3 Facilities; and BJC-NS-1008, Unreviewed Change
                           Determinations for Radiological and Non-Nuclear Facilities. Work activities
                           must be in conformance with the applicable Safety Basis Documentation.
                           This procedure establishes a graded approach to systematically review planned
                           work to identify the associated hazards, significant environmental aspects, and
                           develop preventive measures to control those hazards and aspects for protection
                           of personnel, the public, and the environment. Refer to Attachment A for the
                           definition of “hazards.”

BACKGROUNDSC               A hazard assessment process must be used to identify potential hazards and
OPE                        establish controls once a Scope of Work is developed per BJC-FS-1001, Work
                           Control Process, and documented on BJCF-844, Work Request/Work Package
                           Cover Sheet. A graded approach, based on work complexity and potential
                           hazards involved, must be used. Where multiple error precursors are or
                           reasonably could be present (e.g., first time or infrequent tasks, new tools or
                           methods, etc.), consideration should be given to use of more than one hazard
                           assessment tool. Refer to Section B.1 of thisThis procedure.

                           A hazard assessment process is required for new or non-routine field applies to

                                  is to be used, consider completing BJCF-866 as an aid in this process.
                           C. Work Package Types

                           2. Use BJCF-866 to aid in identifying applicable requirements for inclusion in
                              contracts for subcontracted work.
                           NOTE 1: Due to the varied nature of the work, a three tiered approach is used
                                      for BJC work planning to ensure that hazards and controls are
                                      properly identified and implemented. Work planning, including the
                                      hazard assessment process, is documented in an approved work
                                      package. This document contains the job steps required to perform
                                      the work, identified hazards associated with the work, and controls
                                      to eliminate, reduce or mitigate those hazards for protection of the
                                      workers, the public, and the environment.

                           NOTE 2: Using the three tiered approach, work package types are based on
                                   the severity of consequences due to unmitigated hazards, i.e., as the
                                   severity increases, the level of hazard control and management
                                   approval increases (see C.2, Table 1). BJC-FS-1001, Work Control
                                   Process provides a detailed description of the work planning

                            NOTE: Incorporating job steps, hazards, and controls directly into the WP is
                                     preferable to development of a separate AHA (BJCF-1027). A
                                     separate AHA is not required when the steps, hazards, and controls
                                     are already identified in the Job Instructions.
                            2. Determine work package type to be used (see Table 1).

                                   performing the tasks.

                            2. Identify hazards associated with the work per the second function of ISMS,
                               "Analyze Hazards."

                            NOTE: General hazards and controls, including repetitive hazards and
                                  controls that are applicable to work in the facility, need not to be
                                  repeated in the Job Instructions contained in the WP.

                            3. Incorporate applicable hazards and controls directly into and align with the
                               corresponding work steps of the activity in a clear and consistent manner.

                           The AHA process is designed to assist the Hazard Review Team in the
                           identification, assessment, and control of hazards, including environmental
                           aspects. The process also provides a graded approach to manage the risk and
                           complexity of work. Results of the AHA process may be documented directly
                           in the Job Instructions of the WP or, in unique situations, on a separate AHA
                           form (BJCF-1027). Incorporating job steps, hazards, and controls directly into
                           the WP is preferred, and a separate AHA (BJCF-1027) is not required when the
                           job steps, hazards, and controls are already identified in the Job Instructions.

                              as part of the AHA process and work scope definition.

                           NOTE: Frequency established for the periodic review should be based on the
                                 risk and complexity of work with consideration given to more
                                 frequent reviews for higher risk activities. Refer to BJC-FS-1001 for
                                 more detailed information.

                           I.       Controlling Hazards

                           NOTE: Elimination or control of a hazard must be implemented according to
                                 the following order of precedence:

                                •     Elimination of the hazard (i.e., remove the hazard).
                                •     Substitution (use less hazardous processes, equipment, chemicals, etc.).
                                •     Engineering Methods (e.g., make design changes and/or use
                                      engineering controls to eliminate or reduce the hazard).
                                •     Administrative Controls (procedures, permits, training, or other
                                      appropriate methods to control potential hazards).
                                •     Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Use as a last resort to protect
                                      personnel from residual risks through the use of prescribed PPE.

    Supervisor,            3. Consult the Project ES&H Representative to assist in hazard identification
    Hazard Review             and determination of adequate controls to protect workers and the
    Team                      environment.

                           4. Identify the need for any permits (e.g., confined space entry, Radiological
                              Work Permit [RWP], hotwork, excavation/penetration, lockout/tagout,
                              environmental, etc.).

                           5. Each hazard must have a corresponding control and some hazards may have
                              more than one control. IF a hazard involving chemicals has been
                              identified, THEN
                                 the applicable Material Safety Data Sheet(s) must be made available to
                                 the workers prior to beginning work, and the workers must be trained in
                                 the appropriate use, management, and response to spills or other
                                 emergencies associated with the chemical(s).

                           6. Review and revise (as necessary) the hazard assessment and STARRT
                              Card, as required:

                                •       If the scope of work or method of accomplishment changes.
                                •       Following any accident/incident/environmental release.
                                •       If site conditions change.
                                •       If additional hazards or changes in the controls for existing hazards are
                                        identified.

                           7. Upon completion of the work activity, obtain feedback from workers and
                              communicate appropriate lessons learned during the post-job briefing. Any
                              lessons learned from the work activity shall be documented on the
                              STARRT Card for possible processing into the BJC Lessons Learned
                              Program.

                           E. Risk Analysis Worksheet (BJCF-865)

                           NOTE: The Risk Analysis Worksheet (BJCF-865) is an optional screening
                                 tool that can be used to determine the degree to which a more in-
                                 depth assessment is needed of projects, operations, or facilities with
                                 high risk work activities that may involve unmitigated hazards or
                                 unmitigated environmental aspects/impacts. It can be used to rank
                                 hazards, identify methods to reduce the probability and severity of
                                 hazards, and to determine if a higher level of senior management
                                 involvement/approval is necessary. However,Completion of the Risk
                                 Analysis (BJCF-865) does not take the place of performing the
                                 AHAhazard assessment process., or properly documenting results of
                                 the process in work control documents.

                                        If the work is deemed high risk and the Risk Analysis Worksheet is to
                                        be used, then consider completing first the BJCF-866, Hazard

                           2. Review historical data to identify potential environmental compliance
                              issues, potential physical hazards, chemical and/or radiological
                              contaminants, accident or incident data, previous assessment data, and
                              lessons learned that would be applicable to the project, operation, or
                              facility.

                           3. Review existing design documents and any revised or new design
                              documents related to the facility or site.

                           NOTE: If the work is deemed high risk and the Risk Analysis Worksheet is to
                                    be used, consider completing first the BJCF-866, Hazard

    Supervisor,            6. Prior to start of work, discuss the documented hazard assessment with the
    Project ES&H,             affected workers and revise or update it, as appropriate, based on these
                              discussions. This can be accomplished during work package, procedure or
                              pre-job briefings, as appropriate.

                           7. Obtain the workers’ names on an attendance sheet at the time of the
                              briefing, and request they sign or initial the sheet, indicating they have been
                              briefed on the work control documents including the hazard assessment.

    Subcontractors         8. Comply with BJC-FS-1001, Work Control Process, for changes involving
                              job steps, hazards, and controls that are directly incorporated into the WP or
                              a separate AHA (BJCF-1027) that is included in the WP.

                           NOTE: Contractor’s Project ES&H Representative will review such
                                 documents submitted by the Subcontractor for compliance with

                           K. Periodic Review and/or Revision to Hazard Assessments

                           NOTE: Periodic review of activity hazard assessments used with work control
                                 documents (i.e., work packages or approved operations procedures)
                                 should be performed when revisions are made to the work control
                                 documents that may impact the information contained in the hazard
                                 assessment. More frequent periodic review of activity hazard
                                 assessments may be performed based on the risk and complexity of
                                 the work with consideration given to more frequent reviews for higher
                                 risk activities. Refer to BJC-FS-1001 for more detailed information.

    Supervisor/            1. Conduct periodic review and discussion of activity hazard assessments used
    Project ES&H              with work control documents (i.e., approved work packages or operations
                              procedures), with workers to solicit feedback and maintain accuracy.
                              Revise or update the applicable work control documents (e.g., job
                              instructions, hazard and controls in the approved work package or
                              procedure or separate AHA form (if used), and STARRT card, as applicable
                              in accordance with BJC-FS-1001, Work Control Process, or BJC-PQ-1107,
                              Performance Document Process.

    Supervisor/            2. Suspend and/or stop the work activity if hazards, that have not been
    Workers                   previously evaluated, are introduced or if conditions change that require
                              further evaluation.


                           3. Communicate to the affected workers changes made to all applicable work
                              control documents prior to resuming work.

                           L. Safety Task Analysis and Risk Reduction Talk (BJCF-856)

                           NOTE 1: The STARRT Card (BJCF-856) is an essential tool in the overall
                                   hazard assessment process as it represents the last review/discussion
                                   of hazards, environmental aspects, and their controls before work
                                   begins. It also is an effective tool in evaluating changed conditions
                                   in ongoing work. The color of the STARRT Card is used to track
                                   revisions. The STARRT Card may be periodically revisedupdated
                                   to reflect needed changes/improvements obtained from worker
                                   feedback and Lessons Learned.

                           NOTE 2: As is true for the AHA form (BJCF-1027), the STARRT Card
                                   augments the hazard assessment process and cannot be used as a
                                   sole hazard control document. Attachment C provides a process
                                   flow diagram of the implementation of the STARRT Card process.

    Supervisor,            1. After the initial review of the hazards and controls with the workers during
    WorkersTask               the pre-job briefing, a STARRT Card is obtained and taken to the work area
    Lead, and                 location, where feasible, when work is ready to begin. Use of the STARRT
    Subcontractor             Card is required for all BJC and Subcontractor field work activities to
    Subcontractors            augment the hazard assessment process. The STARRT Card process
                              requires a daily review for active fieldwork.
