12 GeV Upgrade
One of the superconducting magnets built in France for the Hall C Super High Momentum Spectrometer (SHMS) is now crossing the North Atlantic by ship and is expected to arrive in Norfolk by the end of September. This "Q2" magnet will be delivered to Jefferson Lab, outfitted with survey marks, and placed on the SHMS carriage for connection to the cryogenic, power and controls systems.
The leak that was discovered in the dipole magnet helium system in July has now been repaired. The dipole was cut open to access the faulty component, and it has since been welded closed. The magnet is being crated for shipment to the U.S. now.
The last magnet, Q3, is in the final assembly phase. More work has taken place in Hall C and the Experimental Staging Building to verify the performance of the new detectors. One of the SHMS drift chambers is already mounted on the frame which will support it in the SHMS.

Personal Protective Equipment Can Minimize Exposure to Hazards
Basic, non-specialized PPE does not protect against exposure to all hazards, (e.g. electricity, welding, etc.). These hazards require specialized PPE, and often, training in its use. See the ES&H Manual chapter applicable to specific hazard tasks for specialized PPE requirements.
