The new Job Hazards Analysis (JHA) tool, which replaces the Job Hazards Questionnaire (JHQ), has been launched. Employees must complete a JHA by Sept. 30. The system is rolling out on a division-by-division basis. Staff should contact their Division Safety Coordinator to find out when the system will be available in their division. Go here to find out more, or contact JHA support.

Safe Nano Research
Focus of July Meeting

The Department of Energy’s Nanoscale Research Centers, which includes Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Foundry, are sponsoring a 2.5 day symposium on "Safe Handling of Engineered Nanoscale Materials" at Argonne Lab July 7-9. The symposium includes talks by researchers from academia, government agencies and national labs, who will discuss nanotechnology, nanotoxicology, filter performance, protective equipment, exposure assessment, and risk communication. Berkeley Lab employees are invited to attend. Further details and registration information can be found here, or contact Rick Kelly (x4088).


Hands-Free Cell Phone
Law Starts on July 1

A law taking effect on July 1 prohibits drivers from using handheld wireless telephones while operating a motor vehicle.  Drivers under the age of 18 may not use a wireless phone or hands-free device while operating a motor vehicle.  Motorists 18 or over can use hands-free cellular phones with a blue tooth or other earpiece.  The new hands-free law allows drivers to use the speaker phone function of their wireless phone. For more information, visit the California Department of Motor Vehicles website.
