CAT Chat Minutes

10/5/2009

Operations, Mark Beno

Beno mentioned that we are ready to come out of studies and begin the 2009-3 run. The stats for last cycle were Percentage of Scheduled Beamtime 97.2% and Meantime Between Faults 77.4 hours. All stats can be found on the web page.

Safety, Edmund Chang

Chang announced that unneeded materials collection is open until October 30th. Please contact Paul Rossi for arrangements.

The October inspections will involve Sectors 21, 22, 23, 24 and 31.

Chang also mentioned that there had been a Laser strike at SLAC involving a person who was not wearing safety goggles. There appears to be no permanent damage.

The portion of the APS 101 exam has been altered to include a section stating that shorts and sandals are considered proper when working in an office or during data collection, but not while working on the experiment floor.

Next Meeting: Monday, October 12, 2009
