Contractors must establish and implement a hazard prevention and abatement process to ensure that all identified and potential hazards are prevented or abated in a timely manner.
(1) For hazards identified either in the facility design or during the development of procedures, controls must be incorporated in the appropriate facility design or procedure.
(2) For existing hazards identified in the workplace, contractors must:
(i) Prioritize and implement abatement actions according to the risk to workers;
(ii) Implement interim protective measures pending final abatement; and
(iii) Protect workers from dangerous safety and health conditions;
Contractors must select hazard controls based on the following hierarchy:
(1) Elimination or substitution of the hazards where feasible and appropriate;
(2) Engineering controls where feasible and appropriate;
(3) Work practices and administrative controls that limit worker exposures; and
(4) Personal protective equipment.
Contractors must address hazards when selecting or purchasing equipment, products, and services.

Title 10 published on 2015-01-01
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 10 CFR Part 851 after this date.
The Department of Energy (DOE) is amending the worker safety and health program rule to clarify references in the regulation to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's permissible exposure limit for beryllium and updating references to organizations and documents. The regulatory amendments do not alter substantive rights or obligations under current law.
The Department of Energy (DOE) has reorganized its Office of Health, Safety and Security by dividing the office into two separate organizations: The Office of Environment, Health, Safety and Security and the Office of Enterprise Assessments. The Office of Environment, Health, Safety and Security's mission is to provide corporate leadership and strategic approaches for protecting DOE's workers, the public, the environment and national security assets. This objective is accomplished through developing corporate policies and standards and providing guidance on their implementation; sharing operating experience, lessons learned, and best practices; and providing assistance and supporting services to line management with the goal of mission success as DOE's environment, health, safety and security advocate. The Office of Enterprise Assessments administers the Department's Congressionally-mandated enforcement functions in the areas of worker safety and health, nuclear safety, and security, and provides independent assessments of Departmental performance in the areas of security, worker safety and health, nuclear safety and the environment. This final rule makes technical amendments to DOE's regulations to substitute the officials to whom or offices to which functions have been transferred pursuant to the reorganization of offices and functions. This regulation does not alter substantive rights or obligations under current law.
