|Chapter 1300 Content Review Process|
Programs (chapters) and associated procedures (appendices) contained within the Environmental, Safety, and Health (ES&H) Manual are reviewed and approved minimally every three years, or as often as necessary, to provide safety, environment, and health requirements that reflect current standards and requirements. This program provides the responsibilities, and outlines the process by which these reviews are performed.Scope
Jefferson Lab allows 90 days, after content approval, for Divisions/Departments to implement new requirements. If additional time is needed, a work control document, in the form of an Operational Safety Procedure (see ES&H Manual Chapter 3310 Operational Safety Procedure Program), is required. This document is approved by the Associate Director/Division Manager and the Laboratory Director and must ensure equal or greater protection.
The Associate Director - Environmental, Safety, Health, and Quality (ESH&Q) owns the ES&H Manual and has ultimate subject matter determination authority. Upon completion of the review process ES&H chapters are approved by the Laboratory Director and his designates.
All members of the Director's Safety Council and Division Safety Officers (DSC/DSO) are provided an opportunity to review requested substantive changes to the ES&H Manual content prior to approval and implementation.
All content remains in effect until a revision has been approved.
The definitive version of the ES&H Manual is accessible via Jefferson Lab's on-line website. For the most current version, access the document through the EH&S Manual - Table of Contents.
