On Monday, Feb. 15, the Fermilab Property Office will begin conducting inventories within the Self-Service Property system. In the past, personal property inventories were conducted separately over the course of the fiscal year. This year, all property custodians will receive four inventories simultaneously, combined in a single inventory through the SSP system.
Over his nearly five decades at Fermilab, Ron Davis has done a little bit of everything as an operations supervisor working on the lab’s neutrino experiments. As someone who loves to work with his hands, he puts his talents to use for particle physics and, when he’s not at work, on his automobiles and motorcycles.
In response to changes in Fermilab site access and DOE requirements, Fermilab is rolling out a new Event Approval System in SharePoint that will complement the new Policy on Fermilab Events and updated Policy on Access to Fermilab. Starting on Nov. 2, all Fermilab-hosted events must be submitted through the Event Approval System.
The IMPACT database is the labwide solution for creating and obtaining approvals for all hazard analysis starting Jan. 1, 2021. Filemaker Pro, the FNAL Hazard Analysis Database, and the old ESH Hazard Analysis Oracle Database will be turned off for creation of new hazard analysis. Data from these systems will only be available as read-only after Jan. 1 and therefore will not be valid documents for performing work as information will not be able to be changed to coincide with…
The Magnet Systems Group is back to work in HAB, building the Mu2e transport solenoid magnets. We performed what we believe is the first “critical lift” under the new FESHM 10200 Lift Plans chapter on Wednesday, June 3, using two cranes to rotate test unit TSUN08 from the bore-tube-horizontal warm testing position to the bore-tube-vertical cold testing position.
This January marks the 10th anniversary of FRA Earned Value Management System certification. Obtaining EVMS certification a decade ago was a significant event because DOE had at that time established that projects that cost $50 million or more are required to use a certified system. The certification has enabled a broad suite of projects that have shaped the current landscape at Fermilab.
