The Technical Division was awarded the Fermilab
"Most Improved Safety" Award at the ES&H Executive Committee
Meeting yesterday in One North. TD Head Bob Kephart accepted the award
from Director Mike Witherell and ES&H Head Bill Griffing.
"We can take pride in our safety performance as a whole," said
Witherell, recognizing the lab-wide safety record and progress
made in the safety program over the last few years. "The Technical
Division has been setting an extraordinary record."
The award has been presented for the last six years to the division
with the most improved safety record. The Particle Physics Division
came in second and the Computing Division came in third in the
competition for this year's award.
"This was the tightest voting that we've ever had,"
said Griffing. "Both PPD and CD had really outstanding safety
records last year as well."
Electrical Safety Update Training|

Over 110 Lab employees attended the Electrical Safety Update Training
on Thursday, May 27 in Ramsey Auditorium. The training was sponsored
by Fermilab's Subcontractor Safety and Electrical Safety Subcommittees
and led by Bob LoMastro of LoMastro and Associates, Inc. The main
subject of the training was the NFPA 70E Standard for Electrical
Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces, but LoMastro discussed
and demonstrated a wide range of electrical safety subjects for
the home as well as the laboratory.
"It was well-received," said Tom Prosapio of FESS-Engineering. "There
were a lot of questions and a lot of interest."
LoMastro, a former supervisor for the National Safety Council's
Safety Training Institute, kept participants engaged throughout
the four-hour session with videos, anecdotes, props and demonstrations.
The seminar, titled "Current Dangers and Electrical Wizardry," was
sprinkled throughout with audience participation and humor to
illustrate the basic principles of safety, electrical hazards
and requirements of the NFPA 70E regulations. LoMastro
concluded on a serious note, however, showing the audience
photographs of injuries sustained from electrical accidents and
telling participants to "take electricity seriously. Stop, take
a breath and think things through--do a hazard analysis."

University of Chicago's Young-kee Kim Heads International Research
By Lee Hyo-sik
A Korean female physicist has been named to lead an international research group of 800 physicists from 12 different countries.
According to the Ministry of Science and Technology, Young-kee Kim, professor in the Department of Physics at University of Chicago, has been elected as a co-leader of the CDF (Collider Detector at Fermilab) research group, from this month.
Fermilab Receives Two Environmental Awards from the Office of Science; Twelve Fermilab Employees Receive Certificates of Appreciation|

Last February, the DOE's Office of Science announced that Fermilab won two
2003 Pollution Prevention and Environmental Stewardship Accomplishment awards.
Yesterday Director Mike Witherell and DOE Fermilab Area Office Manager Jane
Monhart presented twelve Fermilab employees with Certificates of Appreciation
from the Office of Science for their contributions in achieving these awards.
The first award recognizes the lab for its commitment to pollution prevention
and environmental stewardship through the implementation of the Fermilab
Alternative Fuel Initiative. Through the use of 63 alternative fuel vehicles
on site, Fermilab reduced its use of petroleum fuel by 20 percent for FY03,
accomplishing the Department of Energy's goal of fuel reduction two fiscal
years ahead of schedule. As a result, the Office of Science presented
Certificates of Appreciation to the following Fermilab employees: George
Davidson, Jeffrey Irvin, Gregory Mitchell, Brian Niesman, Randy Ortgiesen
and Jeffrey Sims.
Fermilab received the second award for implementing a Scintillator Plastic
Recycling Program. The Plastic Scintillator Extrusion Line, installed in
the spring of 2003, produces 3,000-6,000 pounds of waste a month.
With the help of Fermilab's Business Services Section, the experiment
found a vendor that could accept 100 percent of the waste, reducing disposal
costs and the need for landfill space. The Office of Science presented
the following employees with Certificates of Appreciation: Jose De
La O, Anna Pla-Dalmau, Dale Wilderspin, Scott Borton, John Kelly,
Eric McHugh. "This award nicely represents the proactive thinking
and collaborative action between particle physicists and business
services at Fermilab," Monhart said.
"Congratulations to everyone who received Certificates of Appreciation,"
Witherell said. "Fermilab has a long record of environmental protection.
Thank you for recognizing how this fits into the laboratory and the DOE."
