History of SNS In 1998 DOE Broke Ground on the SNS with Critical Decision 4 (end of Project) in 2006 In 2000 the University of Tennessee and Battelle Teamed to win the Contract to Manage Oak Ridge National Lab. Soon thereafter "Another" SNS Project Director was Hired and given Equal Status with the ORNL Lab Director. A Stream-Lined Safety Program was Envisioned with Little if any binds to ORNL. In 2002 "Another" Project Director was Hired and put SNS Back Under the Direction of ORNL.

Slide 11

Standards Based Management System (SBMS) A Proven System That Both PNNL and BNL Utilizes. Also INL will soon start their Implementation Process. Makes "One Stop Shopping" for Work Control and the Standards that the Work Shall as well as Should Follow Clearly Defines ALL the Necessary Steps Needed to Perform a Certain Task.

Slide 12

Safety Overview Since 2000, SNS (Non-Construction) has had 15 Recordable Injuries and Illnesses (RIIs) Cases and 1 Day with Restrictions Case (2002). Furthermore, ASD has 3 circumstances where there were infringement of Internal Posting or potentially Procedures (i.e. Bolt Out Tag Out, Internal Parameters, and so on.). The damage rate at SNS stays praiseworthy (1.2 for each 200,000 hours), and we should keep on striving for a proceeded with safe workplace. In the coming months, we (SNS) will accept accountability for the art work contract from Knight-Jacobs. This implies we will be specifically in charge of their state of mind of, and duty to, wellbeing.

Safety Chain

Slide 14

Electrical Systems By far our most hazardous action is dealing with de-empowered electrical frameworks, circuits and boards. ASD has frameworks in each feature of its operation that uses high streams, voltages as well as capacitances! A thorough Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) program is an absolute necessity. Our LOTO program serves us well and each gathering has a Safety Officer in charge of consistence with both NEC and SNS rules. Moreover, we have offered more than 10 Electrical Safety Classes that arrangement with the different parts of our electrical gear.

Slide 15

Research Safety Summaries Research Safety Summaries (RSSs) are set up at the Group and Lab Level. Recognize perils a specific gathering is presented to in their work. Help the Group Leader in deciding the fitting preparing and controls that should be set up preceding performing work. Characterizes the entire rundown of SBMS prerequisites for that Group.

Slide 16

Job Hazard Analysis Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) - lynchpin of our Safety Program handle CLEARLY comprehended by all ASD representatives and is the premise of Integrated Safety Management (ISM). Work is characterized in surely knew strides. Related dangers decided at each progression. Action(s) built up to relieve dangers (i.e., wellbeing glasses, erect a framework, and so forth.). Perform work inside JHA rules. JHAs are routinely reexamined for fulfillment and improvement. Laborer driven program with steady input on how we can keep on making the work more secure.

Slide 17

ASD Example 1 Hoisting and Rigging On Nov 5, 2001 An Employee at our old Receiving Facility was Lifting a Dipole Magnet when One of the Eye Bolts Failed. As a Result of this Event we (ASD) organized a Formal Process of Developing a Lift Plan for every one of our Lifts. A point by point JHA is Prepared and the Documentation is looked into by one of a Select Group of Mechanical Engineers The Lab\'s Program is Modeled after our own and Our External Accelerator Review Committee has put forth a few expressions complimenting us on the meticulousness and culmination of our Hoisting and Rigging Program

Slide 18

ASD Example 2 Lock Out Tag Out On Nov 22, 2002 An Employee was investigating a Lock and Tag connected to a Circuit Breaker in the Klystron Building when the tag fell off in the representative\'s hand. The episode was not legitimately revealed. As a Result of this Event we (ASD) instantly gave a LOTO Practical Factors Training Program for all Affected Employee. Accordingly of finding extra lacks we gave LOTO Verification Training. ASD has constantly utilized the OSHA Required Equipment Specific LOTO Process. The lab\'s program now utilizes this procedure also.

Slide 19

Where There\'s Smoke… ..There\'s not ALWAYS A Fire! On Sept 9, 2004 An Evacuation of the Linac Tunnel, Klystron Gallery and Front End Building Occurred while we where Commissioning our Warm Accelerator (~150 MeV). This departure was because of Our Early Detection Smoke Alarm System.

Slide 20

Smoke Event Cont\' This clearing happened because of a Cryogenic Gas System radiator being in nearness to Canvas Bags containing Steel Shot that is utilized for protecting Purposes. The 2 kW Heater is regularly utilized amid the Initial Cryomodule fill prepare. For our 4 Kelvin chill off the framework stayed set up ~1 month. Because of Thermocouple Placement and different variables the framework did not react legitimately and cause the pipe to Overheat.

Slide 21

Smoke Event cont\' This Overheating never brought on an open fire discharge however burnt a few Canvas Bags that Held the Steel Shot.

Slide 22

Conclusion SNS has made a great showing with regards to of building up a compact framework grasping SBMS and ISM to assemble a world class quickening agent office! We need to keep on learning from our own particular slip-ups and from others. We must be transparent about our slip-ups and also our victories. We should Continue to comprehend what we need to do before we play out the Work (ISM). We need to perceive that the dangers inside our divisions keep on increasing as we go into operation with more effective gear We must know, that we share issues. Perform work in workplaces, stockpiling structures and so on that convey their own particular hazard, which more often than not will be not as evident as the specialized ones.
