CAT Chat Minutes


Operations, Mark Beno

Beno mentioned that there had been 2 small problems totally about 2 ½ hours of downtime. The Meantime Between Faults was 57.9 hours and Percentage of Scheduled Beamtime was 97.7%.

Safety, Tom Barkalow

Barkalow reported that there had been a shipping error made by a CAT when a hazardous dewar had been labeled as non-hazardous before shipping. FedEx refused to accept it so there was no serious consequence. However, in investigating the incident it was discovered that 2 of the people involved had never had a JHQ. Therefore, the sectors will be reviewed to make sure that training is current.

Paul Rossi

Rossi announced that Tri-Inventory is due on April 10th. Also, the April inspections involve Sectors 21,22,23.24 and 31.
