ES&H Manual
Chapter 4100 Safety Training

Contract, federal, state, and local requirements often demand that activities be performed in a certain manner. Jefferson Lab also requires workers to be trained prior to performing certain activities pertaining to Environment, Safety and Health (ES&H) issues. This chapter provides the method used to determine worker's ES&H training requirements; the different types of training available; and how training courses are developed.


This program defines the process by which Jefferson Lab ensures that its workers are made aware of contract, federal, state, and local ES&H requirements.

ES&H Manual chapters define training course requirements related to a specific hazard issue
