The Environmental Safety & Health (ESH) and Infrastructure Safety team within the Science Directorate serves as the group of people who will help you with ESH concerns and questions.

We are Safety Coordinators who are the primary points of contact for all your ESH and building needs.  Feel free to reach out to us if you need anything at all.

We can help you navigate the many requirements that may exist at SLAC related to ESH and facilities support.  This team ensures that all work within the Science Directorate meets SLAC ESH as well as work planning and control requirements. Please contact us and we can help you get started with the items listed below:

  1. Questions about training that needs to be completed before gaining access to the SLAC site and lab areas.  
  2. How to get keys/card access to buildings and keys/card access to individual offices and labs.  
  3. Planning a new experiment or protocol or purchasing/bringing new equipment to a Science Directorate (SD) lab at SLAC. 
  4. Access to the chemical management system to order and check status of chemical orders.
