Pressure Systems Program changes for those who operate, repair, or design pressure or vacuum systems

The Pressure and Vacuum Systems Safety Program (Chapter 6151 in the ES&H Manual) has undergone a significant revision in order to work more efficiently and incorporate "lessons learned" from incidents both at JLab and elsewhere.  This revised program along with the closely associated and recently revised "Welding and Brazing Supplement", will be launched starting November 9, 2015 by making the new documentation available at the ES&H Manual website: https://www.jlab.org/ehs/ehsmanual/index.html for reading.  Additionally, we have updated the Pressure and Vacuum Systems Hazard Awareness training module SAF130A to reflect the revised program.  All those who were trained prior to December 15, 2014 must retake this class before December 14, 2015.  The on-line refresher version is now available at:  https://www.jlab.org/div_dept/train/webbasedtraining.html.   

Those that require the training but have never taken it, can sign up for the classroom course here:  https://misportal.jlab.org/training/home.seam

A more extensive e-mail outlining detailed plans and timelines for full implementation of this revised program and the associated required training will be sent to those who are currently trained in Pressure and Vacuum Systems Hazard Awareness.

This notice applies to everyone that designs, operates, maintains, inspects, and/or modifies pressure systems at Jefferson Lab.
