Project & Experiment Safety Support

CERN and international collaboration/institutes are carrying out projects as well as maintenance and consolidation activities in their research, industrial and tertiary infrastructures. Furthermore, a lot of small, medium and large size experiments are utilising CERN premises in order to operate with beam. The Project & Experiment Safety Support activity provides project leaders and experimental Safety officers, with a specific support for integrating Safety from the earliest stage of their project. Hazard identification, tailored documents listing all applicable Safety prescriptions and an assistance in fulfilling the requirements or in the implementation of technical and organisational risk control measures are also provided in this support activity. 

The support depends on the type of project/experiment and follows internal documented procedures. A member of the HSE-SEE group is appointed as “HSE-SEE correspondent” and establishes a contact towards the project leader/experimental Safety officer, coordinating with all the different specialists available in the HSE-SEE group. 

The HSE-SEE correspondent remains the preferred Safety contact, for all Safety domains, throughout the whole life-cycle of the project/experiment. Once nominated, the HSE-SEE correspondent:

  1. Meets the project leader/experimental Safety officer and, jointly, identifies the hazards generated by the project/experiment;
  2. Meets the HSE-SEE specialists and, based on the above obtained, identifies the Safety requirements applicable to the project/experiment;
  3. Provides the project leader/experimental Safety officer with a tailored document called Launch Safety Agreement (LSA) listing the Safety prescriptions and Safety requirements applicable and all relevant support available to help in their implementation. In addition, the necessary Safety documents to  prove the compliance with the Safety requirements are listed in the LSA and shall be provided by the project leader/experimental Safety officer.
