|Chapter 2500 Safety Warden Program|
The Jefferson Lab Safety Warden Program contributes to the efficient implementation of effective safety regulations and best work practices. Safety Wardens are assigned to specific areas to provide ready assistance to workers and to help facilitate resolution of safety issues. The program also provides for data collection to enable continuous improvement.
The Environmental, Safety, Health, and Quality (ESH&Q) Division provides overall direction for this program. Various ES&H Manual chapters also include Safety Warden responsibilities. These are applicable when an associated hazard issue is a concern within the assigned area. While this chapter provides overall direction to Safety Wardens in all divisions, other duties and responsibilities are influenced by the activities, materials, systems, and equipment in use within an assigned area.
