Safety in practice around a Radioactive Ion Beam facility at CERN

LNL Meeting Room (INFN LNL)

LNL Meeting Room


Managing safety issues in a research centre can be challenging, not only due to the complexity and wide range of the technologies in use in a laboratory, but also due to the diversity and different backgrounds of people, as well as to the continuous changes affecting the work-places. The speaker will share CERN experience in addressing safety issues related to a Radioactive Ion Beam (RIB) facility. The presentation will focus on the identified risks in the RIB target and experimental areas. It will cover the responsibility, authority and role of actors called to manage these risks, along with the tools (hardware, software and procedures) in use at CERN to manage safety relevant processes, systems and equipment.
