An annual reminder about safety

ITER's Safety and Quality Department knows: you can never repeat an important message often enough.

Participants from the ITER Organization and all contractor entities on site were welcomed at booths organized by companies who are on the front line of worksite construction. (Click to view larger version...)
Participants from the ITER Organization and all contractor entities on site were welcomed at booths organized by companies who are on the front line of worksite construction.
The second annual ITER Safety Day took place on 15 September, with more than 800 attendees. 

"Complacency threatens safety," Gilles Perrier, Head of the Safety and Quality Department. "Every actor—on site and in the offices—needs to remain alert and vigilent. Excellence in safety requires more than just following regulations."

Through stands and displays set up on the lower level of the worksite carpark, the message was brought home again and again. Through presentations, hands-on activities, games, contests and demonstrations, exhibitors shared their techniques for raising awareness on this all-important issue. With thousands of people active on the worksite, often in shared spaces and areas, an active commitment to safety is the glue that keeps employees and workers from accident and injury.

Safety has to be the responsibility of all," insisted Director-General interim, Eisuke Tada, in his welcome address. "To ensure that we demonstrate that fusion energy is a safe and reliable source of energy, we must ensure the ITER machine is safely constructed for you, for our partners and for all our stakeholders."

* Participating in the success of the day were Bureau Veritas, Cestaro Rossi, CNIM, the CNPE corsortium, Daher, Dietsmann, the DYNAMIC consortium, ENGAGE, Entrepose-Apave, EQUANS, GDES, GSF, META, MOMENTUM, PmSm, Safety Shop, Vernazza, VINCI/Ferrovial/Razelbec and VPIS.
