* Safety Approval Form (Required)
A Safety Approval Form (SAF) must be completed for every experiment at the NSLSto reduce or eliminate possible risks and hazards associated with your experiment. If your experiment does not pose any risk or hazard use the envelope SAF form for MX. SAF's are good for 1 year.
Experiments that present unusual risk, must contact NSLS Experimental Review Coordinator directly as early as practical during the planning of your work. Time is needed to review your proposal and to configure appropriate controls. Some experiments require committee review, which may take several months to complete. For complete information on safety at the NSLS, consult the Environmental Safety and Health Guide.
