Significant Safety Achievements- 4/14 Completed the quarterly SAA inspections of EETD lab areas on 4/28. Issues have been communicated to lab owners. Assisted with the FLEXLAB 90XR reconfiguration project performed by Webcor. We have implemented lab construction safety procedures. A lot of activity during April. Generated a draft procedure for operation of the 90XR rotating test building. Participated in Building 31 JCESR project planning meetings. Held our bimonthly EETD Safety Committee meeting on 4/3/14. It is time to select new committee members. We have trained three new ergonomics advocates for EETD. I attended to UC lab safety workshop in Irvine, CA.
Short Term Safety Outlook- 5/14 Assist with the FLEXLAB set-up project in 90XR. –Subcontractor/Construction JHA approvals and training –Electrical safety approvals –Fire sprinkler installation work Continue participation in the inter-divisional off-site safety self-assessment project. Address the European electrical appliance approval issue in the B31 test chamber. This could impact other EETD research activities. Assist with the installation of the B60 air conditioning test chambers. Ensure electrical issues are addressed proactively. Another round of old chemical clean-outs is being planned. Prepare for the annual management safety walkthrough of EETD work areas scheduled for 6/12.
