A message from the chief safety officer

13-0093-01D_tnWelcome to the first ESH&Q post in the new Fermilab news system.  I’m excited to bring you our news in this updated format.  The changes to the ES&H organization that have occurred over the last few months have been rewarding for all of us.  We are working more closely together – focused on the lab’s highest priorities and helping our mission by ensuring our work is done in a safe and environmentally sound manner.  Safety is such an important aspect of our lives – it often becomes a cliché or tiresome topic because people think of it as just something more to do – something that has the potential to slow down progress.  It is not.  It is a way of thinking and conducting your work so that you stay well and you minimize your impact on the environment.  We all want to go home at the end of the day in the same condition as when we arrived – Safety allows us to do just that.
