    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
  • 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 Workers Compensation Act.

Injury Reporting
  • If you are involved in an accident, the injury

Module 5
  • Hazard Identification and Control

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
  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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.

  • 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.

  • Liquid helium and liquid nitrogen are used in the
    Super Conducting Cavity in the Storage Ring and
  • 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
  • They also have a high expansion ratio (1700) and
    can reduce the oxygen concentration in the air,
    creating an oxygen deficient atmosphere.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • Machine shop
  • Moving parts on equipment, welding, grinding and
    cutting are some of the hazards found in a
    machine shops.

  • 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.

  • Ergonomics is the study of the interaction
    between you and your workstation.
  • A workstation that doesnt adjust to your needs
    could cause serious injuries.

  • Injuries can occur from
  • Repetitive motions
  • Forceful exertions
  • Vibration
  • Mechanical compression
  • Sustained or awkward position
  • Limitations on motion or action
  • To prevent injuries
  • Adjust your workstation to fit you
  • Take needed breaks to allow for the movement of
    your joints
  • Use equipment that is designed to reduce harmful
    effects of the activity
