Jefferson Lab Employee Tour set for Thursday, Aug. 28; Sign up by Aug. 25

Have you ever wanted to see the experimental halls and the accelerator tunnel, but have not had the opportunity to do so? If so, Jefferson Lab employees, users, students and contractors will have that opportunity on Thursday, Aug. 28, from 1-4 p.m. The tour will include stops at the Test Lab addition, the Machine Control Center, the accelerator tunnel, and experimental halls B, C, and D. The visit to each facility will be guided by subject-matter experts. Photos may be taken.

The tour will include walking and climbing stairs; everyone must wear low-heeled, closed-toe shoes and long pants.

If you have a JLab personal radiation dosimeter, you must wear it during the tour. Supplemental dosimetry will be carried for employees who don’t have a personal dosimeter.

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Get your supervisor’s approval before signing up for the tour. Online sign up instructions will be sent to you after you’ve contacted Mike Robbins, Public Affairs.

For more information and to sign up for the tour, contact Mike at or call x7617 by Friday, Aug. 25.
