The detailed guidelines for safe working conditions are found in site specific Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) Plans. The SHE Plans at each site are a critical element in the Safety Policy and LSST expects that each collaborating organization and contractor has established safety programs that will govern the specific activities at that location. LSST has a minimum expectation for the criteria established in these plans and expects all staff, permanent to the location or visiting, to follow these local procedures.
Safety Health and Environment Plans are developed by location:
|LSST: English | Spanish|
|SLAC: Website | ESH Manual|
|IN2P3: Travel information|
|NOAO-South: Travel information|
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).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support LSST in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
