Welcome

LSST received its federal construction start in August of 2014. This website supports the LSST Project Office in its construction of the facility.

ESH Manual

SLAC is committed to protecting the health and safety of our staff, the community, and the environment as we carry out our scientific mission. We believe that safety, science, productivity, and quality are mutually supportive, and that safety is integral to each job. As stewards of our land, SLAC also seeks to minimize pollution to our environment and to protect our resources and biota.

We are all responsible for ensuring a safe work environment at SLAC, and our effort is steered by the Environment, Safety and Health (ES&H) division.

About ISEMS:

SLAC uses the integrated safety and environmental management system (ISEMS) to bring safety and environment into work practices at all levels.  Our core Safety and Values document shows our expectations for working safety at SLAC.

Five Core Functions

ISEMS applies these core functions as steps to our work:

  • Define scope: What do I want to do?
  • Analyze hazards: What are the risks of doing it?
  • Control for hazards: How can I control those risks?
  • Perform work: Do it (controlling for risks)
  • Feedback and Improvement: Evaluate performance. How can I do better next time?

Also consider the impact of Environmental Management on any job you do.  See About EMS for more information about the EMS portion of ISEMS.

Financial support for LSST comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded LSST Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA).  The DOE-funded effort to build the LSST camera is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
