SAFETY ALERT - Failure of brass non-return valves in gas point installations

There have been three recent failures in brass non-return valves in separate high pressure gas point installations across CERN. Whilst each was in a different gas service, the visual nature of the failure has been similar. >>

Bike to work safely (follow-up)

Following a recent article about safe cycling (see here), the Bulletin received a request for more details on the type of accidents that are reported. >>

Working safely with electronics racks

Think of CERN and you’ll probably think of particle accelerators and detectors. These are the tools of the trade in particle physics, but behind them are the racks of electronics that include power supplies, control systems and data acquisition networks. >>
