A large variety of potentially hazardous materials, processes and equipment can be present at the user facilties, and we take very seriously the challenges of user safety. SLAC uses the integrated safety and environmental management system (ISEMS) to bring safety and environment into work practices at all levels. Each person who uses the facilities shares in the responsibility of ensuring a safe workplace and compliance with federal, state, local and SLAC workplace safety regulations. Contact the user facility safety officers if you have questions or need assistance.

No person may participate in any experimental activity at SLAC unless he/she has been identified by the proposal spokesperson as a member of their experimental team for a scheduled experiment, has complied with access requirements, and has completed the web-based training courses before arrival.

Users must complete several safety training courses online BEFORE arriving at SLAC to receive a new badge (or renewed proximity access on their current badge). Go to this browser check web page (http://training.slac.stanford.edu/web-training.asp) to verify that your computer is compatible with the web training system requirements. NOTE: SLAC web training is compatible with Windows computers using the Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox browsers and Mac computers using Safari, Firefox or Chrome browsers. Linux has limited support. You may try using a Linux computer with the Firefox browser but we don't guarantee positive results.

  1. From the browser check web page, if you do not see any warnings, this indicates that your computer has passed the system check. If you see a warning message, follow the link displayed there for further instructions.
  2. Once you pass the system check, click on the red banner to access the log-in page where you will enter your system ID # and the password slac2005.
  3. After log-in, select the “Web Training Catalog” tab, click on the “Users" folder and then select the following courses to complete. Roll over the course name to see a "Launch" link. Click this link to launch the course. Each training is approximately 45 minutes.Please verify your training was recorded by clicking the 'My Progress' tab to the left of the picture on your SkillSoft home page. *NOTE: the training system will lock you out after two unsuccessful attempts at passing required tests. If this happens, contact useradmin@slac.stanford.edu or slac-training@slac.stanford.edu for assistance.

  • Course CS100 - Cyber Security Training for Lab Users

Anyone with valid CS101/CS200 training will need to take the new course appropriate to their role at SLAC when their current training expires.
