New: Scheduled Accelerator Down (SAD) activities

The MEDCON5 condition stays till further notice. The number of people on site should be minimized.
The users are not allowed on site apart from a few approved ones, who will work on hardware.
A detailed plan for work on site during SAD as well as the proper documentation are available at the engineering page. A new logbook HDSAD is serving for the SAD work organization and reports. The technical staff coordinates their activities at a daily 06:00 meeting. The scientific staff and users should send requests for Hall D/Counting house/Tagger access to HDSAD a day before the intended access. The work progress will be discussed weekly at a special meeting.

Unescorted Entrance to Hall D / Tagger

Required training:

Shift Worker

In addition to the general "Unescorted Entrance" training the shift workers are requred to take a specific training. For each running period or a specific experiment a set of safety-related documents is prepared. Verification of reading and understanding these documents is documented by signing the sheet located in a "yellow binder" of the experiment specific documents. These binders can be found in the Hall D counting house and in the MCC.
