  • 1. Safety & Security Information Welcome to the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory SLAC is one of the world's leading physical science research laboratories. Established in 1962, and operated by Stanford University for the U.S. Department of Energy, our mission is to make discoveries in photon science, particle physics and particle astrophysics. We are enriched by over 3,000 visiting scientists from universities, laboratories and industrial concerns from the U.S. and foreign countries. SLAC strives to be a model of a “safe and healthy” workplace and environmental stewardship. Our employees are trained on our site-specific hazards and controls to mitigate risk. Many hazards are more common to an industrial facility and are controlled by standardized prevention and protection measures. As a guest you are expected to consider SAFETY and the protection of the environment as a paramount concern, to stop working if you or anybody else is in imminent danger, report unsafe behavior. If you are a contractor you are required to develop a job-specific safety plan with your Point-of-Contact, or a University Technical Representative (UTR). If you are a visitor or user, your host is responsible for ensuring that any specific hazards are communicated to you. In case of emergency SLAC has contracted with the City of Palo Alto to have a full-time staffed Fire Station on our campus. This station is dedicated to responding to emergencies that could occur on our site. SLAC also supports a group of employee volunteers (SERT SLAC Emergency Response Team) who are trained in first aid and disaster preparedness. If you witness an emergency you need to immediately activate our emergency notification system. Rev. 05-2009 LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCIES (Examples: Medical Emergencies, Illness or Injury, Fires, Explosion, Large Chemical Spills/Releases, Release of Radioactive Material) • • Dial 911 Then call Security at ext. 5555 (from a “landline”) or 650-926-5555 (from a mobile phone) When calling 911, be prepared to provide the dispatcher with the nature of your emergency, and your specific location (example: SLAC, 2575 Sand Hill Road, Building #) NON-LIFE THREATENING EVENTS (Examples: Minor injuries, small chemical spills/releases, broken equipment that could pose a safety risk, threats to the environment) • Call your SLAC Point of Contact/UTR, then call Security at ext. 5555 (from a “land-line”) or 650-926-5555 (from a mobile phone) • If it is a Medical issue between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM, go to SLAC Medical in Bldg 41, ground floor. If after hours, ext. 5555 will provide you with information for the nearest clinic for treatment. IN CASE OF AN EARTHQUAKE • • • • Remain calm Quickly seek safe refuge; protect your head When safe, proceed to an exterior emergency assembly area Do not leave SLAC until you are accounted for by your SLAC Point of Contact/UTR SLAC maintains a cache of emergency supplies to be use in the event of a natural disaster. Our supplies include food, water, medical supplies and communication equipment. IF IN DOUBT AS TO THE SERIOUSNESS OF AN INCIDENT: • • Dial 911 Then call Security at ext. 5555 (from a “landline”) or 650-926-5555 (from a mobile phone).
