Corrective Actions for Safety Violations, April 1- September 30, 2005

SLAC Human Resources (HR) is supplying this information to keep the Lab informed of the actions taken to ensure adherence to our safety requirements. HR will provide this data periodically.

During the second and third quarters of 2005, SLAC implemented the corrective action process for employees in ten different safety related incidents and, in three of those cases, for their supervisors as well.

The incidents were: two cases of working outside one’s JHAM without a non-routine JHAM; four situations in which employees either smelled of alcohol or appeared impaired; two cases where employees did work without proper authorization; one incident in which the scope of work changed without a new JHAM being written; and one case where an employee used a chair for climbing. Four supervisors were also disciplined in the above situations for not being diligent in carrying out their supervisory duties. The corrective actions included four counselings, four verbal warnings, three written warnings, two final written warnings and a termination. In addition, four employees received verbal warnings for moving traffic violations.
