A large variety of potentially hazardous materials, processes and equipment can be present at the user facilties, and we take very seriously the challenges of user safety. SLAC uses the integrated safety and environmental management system (ISEMS) to bring safety and environment into work practices at all levels. Each person who uses the facilities shares in the responsibility of ensuring a safe workplace and compliance with federal, state, local and SLAC workplace safety regulations. Contact the user facility safety officers if you have questions or need assistance.
No person may participate in any experimental activity at SLAC unless he/she has been identified by the proposal spokesperson as a member of their experimental team for a scheduled experiment, has complied with access requirements, and has completed the web-based training courses before arrival.
Users must complete several safety training courses online BEFORE arriving at SLAC to receive a new badge (or renewed proximity access on their current badge):
