With an increasing underground workforce, the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility has undertaken multiple projects to ensure worker safety. Working closely with Sanford Lab staff, LBNF recently completed an upgrade to emergency systems, including areas of refuge and evacuation capabilities.

Reliability projects are under way at Sanford Lab, and crews are improving the lab for its role as the far site for the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility. The LBNF project recently completed an upgrade of the Oro Hondo fan, the main ventilation fan for the underground facility. This upgrade, completed with the support of Sanford Lab and four local contractors, ensures dependable ventilation in the underground spaces at Sanford Lab.
