Lessons Learned

Sharing lessons learned helps the Department of Energy (DOE) community in learning about mistakes from others so that the mistakes are not repeated.  Lessons Learned programs are instrumental in aiding training and work planning organizations to improve the knowledge and work performance of DOE workers and managers.

Lessons Learned programs are an important component of Integrated Safety Management (ISM) Program in that they provide learned experiences and good practices into the overall work process while warning organizations of adverse work practices or experiences. The results include improved safety performance, reduced worker injuries and exposures, and reduced property damage.
