|Chapter 6105 Office Safety|
The purpose of this chapter and its associated appendices is to provide individuals with Jefferson Lab's office safety requirements. Though not considered the most hazardous of environments, hazard issues do exist in an office setting and are to be addressed appropriately in order to ensure the safety and health of individuals, equipment and the environment.
This program satisfies applicable federal, state, and local requirements as outlined in ES&H Manual Chapter 2410 Appendix T1 Hazard Issues List.
Because of the unique environment at Jefferson Lab, no two office environments are alike. If an area combines office space with other work, all hazard mitigation measures apply to all workers within the area. This chapter and its appendices provide mitigation requirements for the hazard issues associated with typical office work.
T1 Office Safety Requirements
Most office hazards are easily controlled by using common sense; following manufacturer and product label recommendations; and enforcing good housekeeping techniques. However, some hazard issues can only be controlled during day-to-day operations with the cooperation of the individuals involved. ES&H Manual Chapter 6105 Appendix T1 Office Safety Requirements outlines the process steps to be used to ensure office safety.
