Although critical, ISM is only one step towards achieving an outstanding safety culture. Other steps include:

  1. A wide array of tools (manuals, procedures and processes) that help us do our job safely.
  2. Motivated workers, who understand that safety is everyone's responsibility.
  3. Engaged management that ensures the safety culture and tools are constantly assessed and upgraded.

ISMS is about more than just working safely. It is a system that ensures the protection of the public, Jefferson Lab staff and users, the environment, and contributes to the overall quality of the important work done at the lab. The ISMS is only effective when the right tools are applied at the right time.
