  31. Incident/Accident Reporting • An accident is an unplanned event which results in a fatality, injury, property damage or material loss. • Reporting work injuries is an important key to allow the prompt correction of situations that could have a serious affect on the health and safety of the CLS staff, contractors, users, and visitors. • A work injury is the result of any work-related event, such that a worker needs medical treatment or time away from work. • Reporting of accidents or incidents (near misses) is a requirement under the Saskatchewan Occupational Health and Safety Act & Regulations and the Worker’s Compensation Act. Rev. 2

  32. Injury Reporting • If you are involved in an accident, the injury must be cared for immediately and you must inform your supervisor/CLSI Contact. • Consult CLSI Incident/Accident Reporting procedure for more details or contact CLSI HSE Department. • For a minor injury: • Treat the injury • Record the injury and treatment in the logbook located in a First Aid Kit or in the First Aid Room. • Report the injury to your supervisor/CLSI Contact • Major injury (requires medical attention): • Seek and receive appropriate medical attention • Report the injury to your supervisor/CLSI Contact • Complete Accident/Incident Report form (Form No. • Complete the “Injury Report Form” and Worker’s Compensation Forms (WCB). Rev. 2

  33. First Aid Supplies • The first Aid supplies are kept in: • First Aid Closets - Room 1015 and Room 1060 • First Aid kits - placed at key locations • If you use first aid supplies from the First Aid Closet or any of the kits, complete the First Aid Use Sheet. • The First Aid Use Sheet will be reviewed in case there are complications with the injury and a claim has to be made to WCB. This record will confirm that the injury occurred at work and that you qualify for compensation. Rev. 2

  34. First Aid Closets • First Aid supplies are located in Room 1015 and Room 1060 as shown below. Room 1015 Room 1060 Rev. 2

  35. Alarms Rev. 2

  36. Module 5 Hazard Identification and Control Rev. 2

  37. Ionizing Radiation • Radiation, simply defined, is energy transferred through space and matter. • When radiation travels through a medium, it deposits (loses) some of its energy to the medium. • Radiation doses to personnel during operations are primarily the result of secondary radiation caused by the beam striking a target, hardware, or shielding that surrounds the beam line. • The beam pipes and other parts of the machine may become activated during operations. This residual activity is a major source of exposure. Rev. 2

  38. Ionizing Radiation - TLD • TLD is short for Thermo Luminescent Dosimeter. • TLD is used to monitor radiation exposure. • TLD responds to most types of radiation in the same way as tissue. • TLD at the CLS measures exposure to beta, X-rays, Gamma and neutron radiation. • Information required to get a TLD • First and last name, Date of Birth (DOB), SIN, Place of Birth, and Past dose history if applicable – Contact User Office for more info. Rev. 2

  39. Ionizing Radiation • TLD Dose Report • Your quarterly dose report is available upon request from the CLSI HSE Department. • You will be notified if your dosimeter records a radiation dose above the minimum detectable limit. Rev. 2

  40. Ionizing Radiation - EPD • EPD is short for Electronic Personal Dosimeter • EPD is used when immediate dose measurements or dose rate alarm functions are needed. • The electronic dosimeter has a broad dose range and is very accurate. • This dosimeter is issued to escorted visitors who require entry into Radiological Controlled Areas. Rev. 2

  41. Ionizing Radiation • Assigned TLD and any other personal monitoring devices shall be worn on the waist or chest while in the facility. • TLD must be stored in a designated location (badge rack in front lobby or west entrance) when not in use. • Lost/Damaged TLD must be reported immediately to CLSI HSE Department. TLD Storage Rack Rev. 2

  42. Chemical/Biological - WHMIS • WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Material Information System. • WHMIS is a system designed to give employers and workers information about hazardous materials in the workplace. • It is done by identifying and classifying the hazards in the workplace and ensuring consistency of information about hazardous materials. • This information is given through the use of labels, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and worker training. Rev. 2

  43. Chemical/Biological • The CLS facility has hazardous materials from all WHMIS classes. • Chemical and biological materials can have serious health effects on a worker. • The identity of these materials, the possible health effects and any special precautions are clearly spelled out on the labels or in the Material Safety Data Sheets. • The Hazardous Materials Management Plan (Doc. No. will provide you with the information necessary for the proper storage, handling and disposal of chemicals. Rev. 2

  44. Cryogenic • Liquid helium and liquid nitrogen are used in the Super Conducting Cavity in the Storage Ring and Cryogen-room. • Liquid nitrogen is distributed to beamline enclosures and stations as required • Liquid nitrogen fill station is located at the Loading Dock. • These liquids are extremely cold and can cause severe frost-bite if you come into contact with them. • They also have a high expansion ratio (1:700) and can reduce the oxygen concentration in the air, creating an oxygen deficient atmosphere. Rev. 2

  45. Physical • Noise • The noise in mechanical rooms or around equipment can exceed the Provincial guidelines. The sound levels are measured and signs are posted as required. Rev. 2

  46. Physical • Ultraviolet light • UV light is produced during the welding process. Care must be taken to wear the proper eye and face protection while welding. • Heights • Working at heights above 3 meters requires you to be tied off. Rev. 2

  47. Physical • Forklift • The forklift traveling through the facility can be hazardous for anyone walking, the load being carried could restrict the vision of the operator. Operators must be certified to operate the forklift • Crane • The crane moving back and forth could be carrying loads and creating a hazard overhead. Operators must be certified to operate the Crane. Rev. 2

  48. Physical • Vacuum/Compressed air • The beam pipe is under a high vacuum. An implosion of a vacuum system can generate small flying objects. • There are compressed air lines throughout the building. • Machine shop • Moving parts on equipment, welding, grinding and cutting are some of the hazards found in a machine shops. Rev. 2

  49. Electrical/Magnetic • Electrical Fields • The CLS uses high voltage and current to operate various power supplies. • There are 4 main types of injuries • Direct contact with electrical energy • Electrical arcs • Thermal burns • Muscle contractions causing a worker to fall • Magnetic Fields • Exposure to magnetic fields of extremely low frequency may present a health risk. Rev. 2

  50. Ergonomic Ergonomics is the study of the interaction between you and your workstation. A workstation that doesn’t adjust to your needs could cause serious injuries. Rev. 2
