NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Mary K. Logue, an experienced safety professional responsible for the implementation of the Environment, Health and Safety program at the Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Facility, has been named as the associate director for Environment, Safety, Health and Quality division at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.

Logue, currently an associate section head for environment, safety and health at Fermilab, will begin her duties at Jefferson Lab on June 2.

In her new position, Logue will be responsible for the management and direction of Jefferson Lab's environment, safety, health and quality programs. She also will represent the lab on ESH&Q issues with the DOE, government and non-government agencies and other national laboratories.

Since joining Fermilab in 1997, Logue 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.
