Jefferson Lab Safety Configuration Management Board (SCMB)
The Safety Configuration Management Board (SCMB) is chartered by the Lab Director to address matters of accelerator-specific safety related to implementation of the Accelerator Safety Order (ASO). It does not address general safety, which is managed through the Lab’s Worker Safety and Health Program, except in situations where general safety matters may impact the safety of accelerator operations. The SCMB reviews accelerator-specific safety issues, approves changes to systems and operations that affect accelerator safety, makes recommendations regarding accelerator safety and assures continued compliance with the Accelerator Safety Order (ASO). The Lab Director appoints members to the SCMB and, through the Associate Director (AD) ESH&Q, provides oversight of the board’s activities.
