The Safe Conduct of Research

Brookhaven Lab fosters a safe working environment and is known for its operational excellence. The Safe Conduct of Research (SCoR) was produced through a collaborative effort between Brookhaven and other Battelle-affiliated laboratories and is focused on our mission, our methods, our culture, and our needs.

The SCoR principles

  1. Everyone is personally responsible for ensuring safe operations.
  2. Leaders value the safety legacy they create in their discipline.
  3. Staff raise safety concerns because trust permeates the organization.
  4. Cutting-edge science requires cutting-edge safety.
  5. A questioning attitude is cultivated.
  6. Learning never stops.
  7. Hazards are identified and evaluated for every task, every time.
  8. A healthy respect is maintained for what can go wrong.
