Performance Metrics for Safe Laser Operations at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Woods, Michael.
Two types of laser surveys are used at SLAC to help assess the lab's laser safety program and practices. The first survey is an annual questionnaire completed by laser operators at the lab to help assess safe laser practices and the effectiveness of the laser safety program. The second survey is completed by laser operators when they receive approval for one of the following: a new or revised laser safety document, a laser service subcontractor visit, or annual laser lab operation.

Two types of laser surveys are used at SLAC to help assess the lab's laser safety program and practices. The first survey is an annual questionnaire completed by laser operators at the lab to help assess safe laser practices and the effectiveness of the laser safety program. The second survey is completed by laser operators when they receive approval for one of the following: a new or revised laser safety document, a laser service subcontractor visit, or annual laser lab operation. An overview of these surveys is presented as well as results for some of the specific questions. Additional performance metrics are also described, which are based on quarterly tabulations of statistics for laser operations; these include the number of laser operators and lasers and laser labs, laser training evaluations, laser operations approvals given, Laser Safety Officer (LSO) visits to laser labs, and any incidents or lessons learned/best practices reports.
