It is the responsibility of every
individual working in the Photon Sciences Directorate (PSD) to
be aware of and familiar with the hazards associated with their
work and the laboratory environments that they conduct research
in. Equally everybody is responsible for following work
procedures and protocols and ensuring that resources are
available to perform their work in a safe manner.
SLAC’s work planning and control (WPC) program is an integral
part of ensuring that safety is built in to all of our
activities. The expectation from the Associate Laboratory
Director for Photon Science and Line Management is that all
staff, visitors or users MUST adopt and use work planning and
control principles when planning and performing experiments.
Refer to the SLAC WPC Program for more details.
A DRAFT of the WPC document for Photon Science has been created.

The Safety Coordinator directly supports PSD staff
and projects and is the primary resource for assistance with all
Environment Safety & Health (ESH) matters. The Safety Coordinator acts as the primary
interface between you as the PSD customer and institutional ESH
programs. Photon Science also has
a laser mentor who is available to provide assistance on laser related
questions. They are not here to do work for you but instead to
provide guidance as needed. Feel free to call
on them if you need assistance.
The building manager is the main point of contact
for all building related issues, including utilities (electrical,
compressed air, water, process water etc.) tied into the building. The
building manager is also the point of contact for receiving chemicals
and gases delivered to the building.
