PRCS ( Permit Required Confined Space )

The DIRC tunnel at BaBar is a Permit Required Confined Space (PRCS).  All confined spaces pose a risk of bumps, scrapes, and lacerations. PRCSs, however, have the potential for hazardous atmospheres (such as oxygen deficiency) and additional physical hazards (exposed electrical hazards or moving parts).  For these reasons access to the DIRC tunnel is blocked by a barrier that can only be removed for authorized access.  All accesses require a permit to be filled out by the PRCS supervisor and proper work authorization.  Authorization during down times (when the barrel plug is out) can be obtained during the morning or afternoon safety meetings. During the running cycle can be authorized by the run coordinator.  Access to the DIRC tunnel requires opening the backward doors and removal of the plug.

VESDA IMPAIRMENT ( Very Early Smoke Detection Analyzer )

The Vesda smoke detection system used on BaBar is highly sensitive and may go to alert or alarm when certain types of work are done on the detector or even in/or near the hall. Therefore any smoke or dust producing work to be done in/or near IR2 (bldg. 620) must be reviewed and approved prior to the work commencing.  The impairment of the Vesda does not leave the detector without fire protection; only to lower the sensitivity of the system. It must be remembered that if a great deal of smoke is generated the system will still alarm.  Impairment is done by the SLAC fire techs and usually follows a standard day shift. The system is returned to full function before the day shift ends. This is done around 2:30 p.m. If the smoke detection needs to be impaired into the swing shift, special arrangements have to be made well in advance.
 

  • Procedures
    • Complete the BaBar Vesda Impairment Form (pdf) (doc)
    • Contact CEF Department help desk at 8901 to schedule the impairment.
    • State your name and location and which Vesda zone you need to have impaired, the reason and the duration of the impairment.
    • After a reasonable amount of time (half hour) confirm that the impairment has taken place and that it is the proper zone. If it is, work may now proceed. Remember the smoke detectors will come on at 2:30 p.m. so plan work accordingly
