Save the Date: Multi-Lab Safety Week, June 11-13, 2024

By Patricia Thomas and Aaron Potash, April 4, 2024

Last year’s Multi-Lab Safety Week was an outstanding success, a testament to our collective commitment to safety. This year, we are thrilled to announce another joint Multi-Lab activity, with the Magnet Division and the ACORN (Accelerator Controls Operations Research Network) Project at Fermilab and the Magnet Division at Brookhaven National Laboratory joining ATAP.

Multi-Lab Safety Week this year will be held from June 11-13, 2024. Based on participant feedback, the event will last three days. Please save these dates on your calendars to minimize conflicts with Safety Week activities.   

Safety Week has evolved into a cherished tradition in ATAP, and this year, we are returning to the fundamentals with our theme, “Back to Basics.” This theme underscores the importance of integrated safety management (ISM) and how it can be enhanced by implementing human performance improvement (HPI) principles, which are crucial elements of our work. Multi-Lab Safety Week will be an all-hands, all-hazards event, offering continuous learning and education opportunities.  During this 3-day event, ATAP Programs will allocate times that suit them best to engage in specific safety activities, focusing on:

On-going learning and education:

  • Utilize the time to complete WPC training
  • Attend safety-themed seminars as part of ongoing learning and education

Housekeeping:

  • Workplace cleanups and self-assessments
  • Conduct management walkthroughs and have peers review labs, shops, and offices

Plans will be coordinated with Program Heads and Program Safety Coordinators. (With the Division Director’s approval, programs with significant, unavoidable project schedule conflicts may choose to conduct some activities before the designated Safety Week). Detailed instructions will be communicated in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, please be prepared to participate in this highly beneficial investment in safety.

We look forward to seeing you there!
