Every experimental area has a "Hazard Identification List." This list is to be read by all experimenters who work in that area. Hazards at experimental areas may include:

  • Trips and falls

  • Welding, torch cutting, and brazing

  • Exposed high-current and/or high-voltage electrical connections

  • High magnetic fields

  • Oxygen Deficiency Hazard (ODH) (usually resulting from potential release of cryogens)

  • Flammable or explosive gases and liquids

  • Chemical hazards (typically solvents, heavy metals)

  • Pressure and vacuum vessels

  • Radiation hazards from the beam, or from radioactive sources (often attached to the experiment apparatus)
