Safety E. Chang:  Elroy reported on the following highlights for this week

 

CAT Inspection Write-ups
Inspection reports have been sent to CATS
Observations:
Hutch areas need housekeeping
Configuration of equipment can lead to obstructed access of search buttons, emergency stop buttons
Two ASD employees - head injuries

Waste Pickup Delays
Delays in waste pick up were attributed to budget
WMO had already made more pick ups than budgeted for fiscal year 2003

HR302 Sexual Harassment Training
ANL employees who have a JHQ must complete course HR302
Exceptions: HR302 is considered optional for employees who have JHQ but are not ANL employees
Human Resources (HR) is currently working on notifiers

Machine Shop Training
Planning to meet with all APS machine shop coordinators to determine uniform policy
Feedback to E. Chang, AOD

 

Critical Component System Manager B. Ruzicka: Bill projected a copy of a draft memo addressed to APS Group Leaders and Beamline Staff in which he explains the expanded role of M. Ramanathan to include AOD Configuration Control System Manager. Mohan will be seeking your support as he will ensure that proper reviews, commissioning, configuration control and maintenance processes are in place. Please lend him full cooperation.

Operating Mode Request Form Roger Klaffky is working on this form.

Survey Points around Ring:  Horst Friedsam of the APS Survey Group requested that you please check with your floor coordinator before doing any work (i.e., repainting floors) that would remove or obscure survey markers on the floor.
