It is the policy of the Physics Division, as well as the Laboratory, that
all activities within the facilities for which the Physics Division is responsible
shall be conducted in a manner such that all reasonable precautions are taken
to protect the health and safety of employees and of the general public, as
well as the environment. The Division fully supports and implements the principles
of Integrated Safety Management.
Implementation and assignment of responsibility for safety are delegated
at the same time as responsibility for performance of the operation. Safety
performance will be a consideration along with other performance items at the
time of performance evaluation.
If, at any time, you are concerned about the safety of yourself or others,
it is your responsibility to contact your supervisor, the Division ESH Engineer
or a member of a Division safety committee for consultation. Also, remember
that you always have the right and responsibility
to stop work you or others are doing that you feel is
unsafe. (See also Chapter
1.1.6 of the ESH Safety Manual.) Safety must
be an integral part of all your activities. A listing of all the above personnel
can be found on the Physics
Division's ESH Organization page. Copies of this list
are posted at various locations on Division premises.
The following information is in abbreviated form, meant only to serve
as a general guide. Further details are in a number of specialized Laboratory
and Division documents such as the following:
Copies of these documents as well as other material related to safety are
available in the Physics Division ESH Engineer's office for your examination
Remember that any form of carelessness in the Laboratory may involve serious
consequences for others as well as yourself. Try to anticipate hazards
and plan accordingly.
