The attached Operating Experience Level 3 (OE-3) document describes the Savannah River Site's Conduct of Operations and technical improvements to ensure rigorous Technical Safety Requirement (TSR) development, implementation, and execution.

From 2014 through 2018, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC reported TSR violations at a rate of ~6 per year across 11 Nuclear Facilities. Similarly, Savannah River Remediation experienced a rate of ~2 TSR violations per year across 3 Nuclear Facilities between 2016 and 2018. Each TSR violation was analyzed for causes and corrective actions, followed by an expanded review of all TSR violations to determine if programmatic issues existed.

This OE-3 describes improvement actions taken and cross-cutting areas that are essential for sustained improvement based on the broad impacts related to TSR implementation. Please share this document with your communities of practice to foster continuous improvement in safety.
