Foundry Hosts Annual Safety Retreat

Following morning remarks by Foundry Director, Jeff Neaton, members of Berkeley Lab and Facilities leadership, and Foundry Facilities and EHS Manager Michael Wisherop, the Foundry's staff and users participated in two open house activities to learn about safety measures in other facilities at the Foundry.  The open house sessions, which included visits to the cleanroom, laser lab, maker spaces, disaster supply box, and 'behind the scenes' spaces like the roof and water purification system, created opportunities for users and staff to share EH&S practices and ideas. 

After lunch, each facility met to discuss the morning sessions as well as talk through the retreat's themes: EH&S Roles and Responsibilities, particularly those of the Activity Leads; and reporting all injuries, near misses, and unsafe conditions.
