C. Individual Event Reports
Various events occur at unexpected or irregular intervals which require the preparation of reports thereon.
One such occurrence is the failure of equipment during service or operation, possibly resulting in a forced
outage or shutdown. Another would be the observance of damaged or defective equipment discovered either
during routine Inspection or as a result of specific investigation prompted by observed or suspected faulty
operation. Occurrences of the latter type might necessitate arrangement of scheduled outages to allow
repair, removal or replacement of the faulty equipment. Under such circumstances, a comprehensive report
on an individual event basis shall be prepared, which is designated the Equipment Trouble Report, form
Other occurrences requiring preparation of an individual event report are those involving reportable Incidents
as defined in
each reportable incident by a review board, and preparation of a confidential report thereon for local use, a
synopsis of each incident shall be prepared using Form PO&M-171, "O&M Improvement Reporting System."
These summaries will be used by the Facilities Engineering Branch, in developing a Reclamation-wide
"Annual Report of Power Employee Incidents." This annual report shall serve as a training document to
inform O&M personnel of solutions to existing problems, and to impress all personnel with the need for
continual awareness and alertness to prevent recurrence of such events.
Following are descriptions of the report forms to be used, and the information to be provided thereon in
preparing an Equipment Trouble Report, and a O&M Improvement Reporting System Report:
