Each person who works at LCLS is required to be familiar with and identify in advance the hazards associated with his/her work, the hazards associated with work areas, and to properly implement all necessary procedures and protocols for mitigation of those hazards. Each person is required to observe all federal, state, local and SLAC/LCLS workplace safety regulations as well as Integrated Safety & Environmental Management System (ISEMS) and Work Planning and Control (WPC).
The SLAC Security Gate 17 is only open Monday-Friday 6 am-10 pm. During other hours, pedestrians can enter through the turnstile at Gate 17. If this turnstile is not working, please try the alternate turnstile at Gate 16A beside the SSRL building 137. The other alternative is to drive to Sector 30 Gate (open 24 hours) and around the PEP Ring Road to reach SSRL or LCLS. Exercise caution as this road has limited lighting, signage, and shoulders—and deer are frequently seen in this area. If you have problems or need assistance, contact Security at 650-926-2551. For EMERGENCIES, CALL 911 OR 5555
A series of safety related questions are incorporated into the proposal and experiment safety process. Please answer these questions and provide additional information as appropriate. When appropriate, the LCLS Safety Office will contact you and coordinate specific training and controls to mitigate potential safety issues associated with your proposed experiment. Contact Ian Evans to discuss all safety issues related to user proposals or scheduled experiments.

Feedback is an important part of the Integrated Safety & Environmental Management System (ISEMS). Users are required to complete an end of run summary after each scheduled experiment. The feedback provided by users will be used to address issues raised by users and to continually improve user resources and support. User feedback will be shared with LCLS safety office, management and scientific advisory committees. Users are also encouraged to contact the Users' Organization Executive Committee to share their suggestions or concerns. Complete end of run summary through the user portal.
