Start of Experiment

Safety Approval Form (SAF)

Prior to start of the experiment the Safety Approvel Form (SAF) must be signed by:

  • the main proposer,

  • the local contact,

  • and the European XFEL safety engineer

During the experiment the SAF document is posted at the beamline, stating:

  • period of validity

  • list of people carrying out the experiment

  • list of samples

  • safety measures to be taken during the experiment

  • the risk analysis including comments from the SRP Group

If there is a modification in the SAF e.g. a change in the name, validity or sample, you must immediately contact the Safety group in order to re-validate your form.

At the end of the experiment, you must again contact the Safety group to ensure a check of the experiment hutch.
