Relating to Other Programs
The system of integrated safety and environmental management
means that ISEMS in every program and policy we have here at
SLAC. We integrate it into everything we do.
However, there are some programs that more directly than others
support the steps of ISEMS and help us to figure out our steps
In addition to those listed below, Chapters 1 and 2 of the ESH
Manual, General Policies & Responsibilities
and Work Planning & Control,
should be reviewed as they specify individual roles &
responsibilities in all areas of work for esh topics.
How it's Used
|The ESH Manual is divided into specific topic areas
and defines policies for them. Checking this
guidance to see what policies we might have to follow,
or recommended procedures to use, will help make our
scope more clear. It will also save time in 2 and
3 below if these are checked first.
|2. Analyze hazards
|If our work falls into specific topic categories,
the ESH Manual Chapters can help find out common
hazards for the topics.
Work Planning and Control
|The Work Planning and Control Program is a direct link to this
step. In this program, there are examples of
hazard types and forms for employees (ATAs) and
subcontractors to help identify the hazards in
specific jobs and steps. Using the AHA Library
also assists in finding out if the area we'll be working
in has hazards already identified.
|Inside the Contractor Assurance and Contract Management group, this program looks at time when planning or tools
didn't work so well, and figures out ideas on making
them better. Using examples from SLAC, other DOE
labs, and the local area, there are several topics
covered and ideas gathered. When analyzing
hazards, sometimes it helps to see what didn't work
first - we may not have thought of something as a hazard
until we see that it's happened to somebody else first.
|3. Control for hazards
|Some topics have recommended procedures for
|Some Lessons Learned also provide an analysis of
better ways of controlling the hazards in the future.
|Reviewing the Course Catalog and using the SLAC Training Assessment is a tool to help find
out what training is needed for jobs and people.
Training is considered to be a hazard control method.
|4. Perform work
|Activity & Training Authorizations (ATAs) in the
Work Planning and Control (WPC) program provide a
mechanism to define specific activities that a worker is
qualified and authorized to perform.
|5. Feedback and Improvement
(link to HR tools)
|A program through Human Resources, performance
evaluations annually review our work and give us
feedback on how we're doing. This program should
be considered broad-scope, however, and each job should
do individual feedback and improvement sessions.
