Presented at ILSC 2009
During September 2008 an independent and comprehensive Readiness Assessment of the National Ignition Facility was conducted to determine if the facility is in a state of readiness to safely conduct operations. This assessment was performed according to DOE Operational Readiness Review requirements and included a detailed evaluation of the Laser Safety Program based on ten criteria. This paper includes a description of the review process, a summary of the results, and noteworthy practices. The overall finding was that the NIF Laser Safety Program is in complete compliance with all requirements of ANSI Z136.1, the LLNL ES&H Manual, all NIF policies and procedures, and all indentified best practices. The evaluation resulted in no suggestions for improvement.
