Typical Outline for a Preliminary Experiment Safety Assessment or an Experiment Safety Assessment Document

This document describes identified hazards of an experiment and the measures taken to eliminate, control or mitigate them. Particular attention must be paid to the analysis and evaluation of conditions that may pose special safety problems. It includes the Safety Analysis and reviews or defines the Safety Envelope for the equipment; it references the Radiation Safety Assessment Document (RSAD) which documents the experiment operations envelope and addresses EH&S issues associated with direct and induced radioactivity.

(See the DOE Accelerator Safety Order and the Jefferson Lab EH&S Manual for guidance in the preparation of an Experiment Safety Assessment Document)
