It is with great pleasure that I write to inform you that Mary K. Logue, an associate section head for environment, safety and health at Fermilab, will join us on June 2 as the new Associate Director for ESH&Q.
Mary is an experienced safety professional, who is well versed in safety, health, environmental and quality issues as they relate to a national research laboratory and the Department of Energy. I believe her expertise and knowledge will greatly benefit the lab, and I look forward to working with her. In her current position at Fermilab, Mary has specific oversight and responsibility for the Safety & Environmental Protection Program.
Since joining Fermilab in 1997, Mary has been involved in a variety of critical programs. In her current position, she has led implementation efforts related to environmental permitting, environmental monitoring, waste management, safety engineering, ES&H training, industrial hygiene, fire protection, construction safety and emergency preparedness. She also led Fermilab in a successful effort to decrease workplace injuries, and she developed a hazard analysis program for the lab.
Prior to Fermilab, Mary worked as a section head for safety engineering at Argonne National Laboratory for five years. Before that, from 1986-1991, Mary worked for DOE in its Chicago office, where she held a variety of positions, including senior program manager with oversight for Argonne's ES&H, construction and nuclear programs. She began her career in 1983 as a health physicist at the DOE's New Brunswick Laboratory.
Mary has a bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Notre Dame and a master's degree in health physics from Northwestern University. She and her husband, Jack have three children.
While welcoming Mary to Jefferson Lab, I also want to thank Bob May for his outstanding service as our Acting Associate Director for ESH&Q. In addition to assuming responsibility for the lab's day-to-day ESH&Q operations, Bob also has played an important role in the lab's preparations for the DOE Office of Independent Oversight assessment of our ES&H programs in June. Bob's commitment to the lab, its people and to our well being is very much appreciated and an example for all of us.
