Contractor Oversight 1 (. Roper Coincidentally we are looking at this same issue in my company and I'm interested to see the feedback you get. We have contractual requirements for Contractors to have EC Programs, provide us with documentation on how this is communicated to their personnel, designate an ECP Liaison, and report when they initiate and close investigations. Our Internal Audits Team includes ECP as a component in their annual contracting compliance audits. Our Contractors have to report quarterly on their EC Programs via ISNet World and we try to attend quarterly contract performance meetings. The procedure we use is being revised at this time. I'll see if it can be shared.

Onboarding: Including Safety Culture on Job Postings/Interviews 0 S. Dalton Our company’s Safety Culture Monitoring Panel wants to enhance onboarding processes by incorporating safety culture wording in job postings and interview questions to help us assess candidates’ personal safety culture attributes, i.e., leadership, employee engagement, and organizational learning. Online research has not produced any sample interview questions or wording for job postings. If you can share what your organization does to include safety culture/SCWE in your onboarding processes, I’d appreciate hearing from you. Thanks in advance!  (You may also email me at Sandra.Dalton@ettp.doe.gov. )

What ECPs Lead Safety Culture Activities for their organization? 1 J. March At the FENOC plants, Beaver Valley, Davis Besse and Perry Safety Culture activities are led by the Regulatory Compliance Manager. He has the Performance Improvement group under him. It has been our belief that Safety Culture belongs to the plant and they are responsible for it. ECP just monitors it.

Documenting ECP Interactions 1 R. DenBleyker Richard,Within the ECP process itself, we do not document every contact with individuals, unless it turns into a concern and we ask that question, along with many others. What we do not wish to have is someone thinking they filed a concern with ECP after talking with us, and ECP not opening one, that is why we spend time with employees who talk with us to ensure we've shared expectations. And, we do not formally track a contact with an employee. However, there are within our ECP program guidelines and company Ethics and Security standards, instances when you have to do something with the information. Employee pulsing is typically documented and communicated to management. Any and all contacts with CIs and ECP case related discussions are documented. Obviously there are some instances where someone asked for advice on how to address something, our guidance is to make note of that outside of ECP space and then follow up with the individual. It is encouraged that within ECP these discussions are brought up and discussed collegially just to ensure we've not missed anything.Thanks for using the NAECP web to ask your question.Andy
