Observer – An observer does not participant in research or commissioning. They are welcome for networking reasons or to encourage them to become ECs in the future. Their primary role is to observe for their own benefit for a short period of time. Observers should be carefully considered and scheduled, since their participation can be a distraction in the control room. Typically the observers contribution would not rise to the level of being included on any papers.
Observers may not participate in any work, and should not enter controlled areas unaccompanied, including the CBETA control room and the CBETA hall, L0E
Observers do need to wear a visitor radiation badge while in the CBETA control room (can be signed out from the CESR operator).
On their first day at Wilson Lab, observers should fill out a Short Term Visitor Form and receive basic safety orientation from a knowledgeable collaborator (two emergency exit routes, location of CESR Control Room, fire alarm, fire extinguisher).
