From lab leadership

All-hands updates

The ES&H Section is here to help. We support the lab mission, and safety is top priority. Thanks to a work assessments by DOE and our ongoing efforts at human performance improvement, we are always working to improve our work at both section and individual levels. One of our biggest projects is LBNF, in particular the work in South Dakota, where we are making sure that work there is conducted as safely as it is on the Fermilab site. Treating our environment is also key, and we’re bringing it to everyone’s attention with the April 25 Earth Day Fair in Wilson Hall.

Our office works continually to improve our connections to the lab’s projects, to related tracking systems, and to its people. As we support projects such as LBNF/DUNE, CMS, PIP-II and infrastructure-related projects, we’re also actively strengthening our office’s capabilities for project management in general.

2018 All-hands updates

It was my privilege to inform staff of the significant progress we’ve made at PIP-II, as well as give a run-down of our substantial to-do list in making PIP-II a world-leading accelerator project. Our strong, experienced team is doing excellent work, and we’re grateful to an effective Integrated Project Team, the Office of High-Energy Physics, the DOE Fermi Site Office and the Fermilab Directorate for their strong support.

On Friday, Dec. 7, the Office of the Chief Operating Officer held an all-hands meeting. Exciting things are happening as Fermilab fully steps into its future: bringing the world together for neutrinos. Strong engagement with our partners around the world and at DOE mean great things are happening – and we must remain focused to keep on track and deliver world-class science.

On Dec. 3, the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility and South Dakota Services Division team held our all-hands meeting following the lab-wide meeting in October. It’s a busy time, as we have accelerated the pace for the entire LBNF project over the past six months. 2019 will start fast as well, with our DOE Independent Progress Review happening in early January.

On Dec. 3, the Applied Physics and Superconducting Technology Division held an all-hands meeting, the first under its new name. Progress on our multiple projects, including PIP-II, cryomodules for LCLS-II, solenoid production for Mu2e and the accelerator upgrade project for the High-Luminosity LHC, is moving quickly. 2019 promises to be another full and important year for our team.
