» Safety Guidelines

SSRL Beam Line

We take very seriously the challenges of user safety. Each person who uses the lightsource facilities shares in the responsibility of ensuring a safe workplace.

SLAC uses the integrated safety and environmental management system (ISEMS) to bring safety and environment into work practices at all levels. Our core Safety and Values document shows our expectations for working safety at SLAC.

ISEMS applies these core functions as steps to our work (as well as the environmental impact of all tasks performed):

Each person who uses our facilities is required to observe all federal, state, local and SLAC workplace safety regulations. Work Planning and Controls (WPC) requires that users plan experiments properly, take extra effort to identify potential hazards, and work closely with us to develop mitigations and implement controls.

Contact SSRL or LCLS safety officers if you have questions or need assistance:
