Work Alone Policy

NE-CAT is fully committed to comply with the “Work Alone” policy of Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) which states the following:

  “When the activities involve significant hazards anywhere inside the laboratory, you are not permitted to work alone and you must remain in sight and sound of a second person who understands the work being performed and knows all pertinent emergency procedures.  However, working alone conducting non-hazardous activities is permitted provided someone from the host group is aware that you will be doing so”.
