Safety

Emergency and disaster mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery is the foundation of emergency management. It is through the development of emergency training and response plans that Fermilab is able to reduce its vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters.

Remember that winter driving requires patience, and give yourself extra time to get to your destination in inclement weather.

The current ESH&Q Joule is Al Sondgeroth. As a quality assurance representative, Al Sondgeroth represents the Accelerator Division to the ESH&Q Section, disseminates quality-assurance-related information between the division and section, and identifies and helps perform AD self-assessments. He also occasionally participates in human performance improvement and incident investigations. As a member of the Muon Department, Al oversees the removal of the cables that were used for the decommissioned Accumulator. This task includes keeping track of all removed cables in their cable…

There are tens, if not hundreds of thousands of electrical appliances and products across the Fermilab site. We expect that if a product comes with a cord and a plug, we can plug it into a receptacle and be safe. That’s not always true, though.

Welcome 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…
