As SLAC is ramping up onsite recovery activity, we must do so in a manner to ensure the health and safety of its employees, as well as contractors. To do so, we have implemented some new ESH safety protocols to which we all must be accountable in accordance with the CDC, as well as San Mateo County (SMC) Public Health Orders (PHO). SLAC has developed new protocols with these requirements in mind. Below are the key elements I’d like to point out as we prepare for the recovery of work at the SLAC campus:
- Our Guiding Principles are the health and safety of employees and contractors, adherence to CDC and PHO requirements, and the planning and prioritization of work appropriately and with intention.
- Mandatory COVID-19 training for contractors – This SLAC developed course is now available and can be taken remotely or at the SLAC Security Center. The course is ~30 minutes in duration and will have a brief exam to pass with a minimum 80% score to obtain a completion certificate. This certificate must be presented (digitally or hard copy) to prove completion and gain access to the SLAC site. Please work with your technical Point of Contact to arrange access to the course.
- Adherence to the revised Job Safety Analysis (JSA) for construction or non-construction efforts. You will be provided the appropriate JSA document to be completed and submitted for SLAC approval prior to commencement of any work. Some onsite services will not require a JSA, so if you have any questions about this requirement, please contact your SLAC Technical Representative or SLAC Procurement Specialist.
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Cleaning Supplies – Contractors are responsible for providing their employees appropriate PPE and cleaning supplies to ensure a safe and healthy work environment in accordance with the SLAC protocols.
- Employee Health Check Protocols –Contractors performing work onsite are responsible to ensure daily health checks are implemented for employees prior to entering the SLAC site for daily work activities. These protocols must be in accordance with CDC and SMC PHO guidelines.
We look forward to re-engaging our work activity with each of you.
