AWAKE's main safety issues are explained in the dedicated AWAKE on-line safety course.

Follow the course on lms.cern.ch and pass the test in order to access AWAKE.

 

Most importantly:

  • Eating, drinking and smoking is forbidden in the entire AWAKE facility, including the AWAKE control room.
  • Lone working is forbidden in the AWAKE underground facility.
  • In the case of an emergency evacuation, you need to walk 1km uphill (6%) and climb 60m upstairs - do not use the elevator.

Contact the AWAKE Project Safety Officer (PSO) in case you feel you need to enter the area on your own.

Never enter the area alone unless you have written approval from the AWAKE PSO.

 

The guideline for organising a professional visit for AWAKE is available on EEDMS 1281098, make sure to contact the AWAKE PSO at least 5 days before the visit.

 

In case of safety-related questions, contact the AWAKE PSO via awake.safety@cern.ch.
