All TTS programs and departments actively pursue continuous improvement, and the addition of Integrated Safety Management concepts further strengthens this institutional culture.TTS has accepted the ISM concept by contract under DOE Acquisition Regulations (DEAR) Clause 970.5204-2 and DOE Policy 450.4, Safety Management System Policy.

TTS has adopted DOE’s guiding principles and core functions of ISM on a corporate level and in all the individual program/development plans. These flexible guidelines are tailored to the nature of the work and the severity o the hazards and environmental risks encountered in individual situations. TTS line managers incorporate ISM into management and work practices at all levels to ensure that safety is an integral part of day-to-day activities, and is not the sole responsibility of ES&H professionals.

These principals and functions form the basis of TTS’s culture and have been incorporated into the TTS Quality Assurance Plan.
