Safety share: Why stay home when the lab’s operations are suspended?
In the event of severe weather or other emergencies that affect the lab’s operational status, site occupants may be asked to refrain from coming to Argonne’s campus. Why?
- We want you to remain safe.
- We may be trying to clear the site’s parking lots and roadways of snow and ice, and we can do this more efficiently if there are no vehicles on the road and in parking lots.
- During severe cold, ice melt used on sidewalks, parking lots and roadways may be rendered ineffective.
To receive emergency notifications, including winter-related changes to the lab’s operational status, make sure your contact information is up to date in Workday. You can enter your cell phone number and keep it private (not viewable to other employees) by selecting the “private” status.
NOTE: During a suspension of laboratory operations, employees who line management deems essential to operations may be required to report to work as usual.
