ISMS Awareness Training in April
Everyone at Jefferson Lab will receive Integrated Safety Management Awareness Training during April. Specific sessions have been scheduled and you will need to go to the link noted below to register for the class you wish to attend. Once you have logged in, click on "All On-Site Training," then click the Register button beside the ISMS Awareness class that best matches your job (Employee/Supervisor/Shift Worker) and your division. You will need to scroll down to the bottom of the first page and even onto the second and third pages to find all of the scheduled ISMS Awareness classes.

The training will take about 90 minutes and all sessions will be held in the CEBAF Center Auditorium. Please bring your JLab badge to your training session - verification of course completion will be through scanned badges. This training will enhance the ISM materials previously made available and will:
- Provide the opportunity to discuss and ask questions about ISMS, the ISM core functions and guiding principles;
- Further familiarize everyone with ISM terminology;
- Promote knowledgeable use of ISM tools (ISM website, work planning and corrective action systems, Workers Safety Committee, Lessons Learned database, and the Jefferson Lab Safety Toolbox (spiral-bound notebook));
- Provide insight into what the Department of Energy's Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS) inspection team will be looking at when they visit in May and June. And why the team will be looking at those things and when it will look at them;
- And help workers frame their thinking and responses to inspectors' potential questions during the review.
While many workgroups at JLab have been doing a good job of integrating ISM into planning and daily work, results from JLab's recent internal look at ISM practices lab-wide have shown gaps in understanding and implementing this critical program.
For everyone at the Lab to benefit most fully from ISM and to ensure the best possible outcome from this HSS inspection, it is crucial that everyone at Jefferson Lab understand ISM and the importance of the HSS inspection. Please review your Jefferson Lab Safety Toolbox and the Integrated Safety Management System Program Description (available on the Training and Performance webpage: http://www.jlab.org/div_dept/train/webbasedtraining.html) before you attend this class. Bring your questions with you.
Thank you for your commitment to maintaining a safe workplace and helping the Lab move toward an integrated safety culture.
