The Virtual Manual: Moving from Paper- to Web-Based Documentation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is implementing an Integrated Safety Management System (ISMS) to assure that all environment, safety, and health (ES&H) requirements and practices are integrated into work planning, execution, and feedback. A major component to ISMS is the rewriting of the Laboratory's ES&H documentation to meet federal, state, and local requirements and standards. Previously, the Laboratory's operations documentation was paper-based and decentralized; updates were time-consuming and expensive to produce and distribute. The immediate goal for the ISMS project team was the development of a virtual, Web-based manual that provides current, consistent information easily accessible to users. Future updates to ... continued below
