The report describes the initial testing of a self-help manual developed for application by U.S. industry to help reduce its vulnerability to a nuclear event it is expected to have application to natural disasters as well. The completed program constitutes the first two phases of a multiphased effort to evaluate the general concepts in the manual. In the first phase, purely analytical procedures were used to test the principles and techniques. These were applied at a number of industrial sites by personnel familiar with weapons effects and at a few of the same plants by in-plant personnel unexperienced with weapons effects the results are compared. In the second phase, actual hardening exercises were carried out, both by personnel familiar with the manual and also by plant personnel entirely unassisted. These operations were documented with slides andor movies, and information was obtained on time and personnel logistic requirements to complete the hardening efforts. Results of the analyses are presented and comparisons made which suggest significant benefits from self-help industrial hardening might be expected.
