Controlled Access to the MICE Hall

Occasionally MICE collaborators will need to enter the MICE Hall when it has been searched and secured.
Since search and secure can take up to an hour a procedure has been put in place to allow controlled access.


MICE collaborators can only be allowed to carry out a controlled access if

  • they have already received CDM training
  • they have been trained in procedures for working in the MICE Hall magnetic field environment
  • they have been trained in the controlled access procedure

Controlled Access Training

Controlled access procedure is governed by

  • the Controlled Access checklist (if no SC Magnet permit is active)
  • the Controlled Access with SC Magnet Permit Active checklist if the permit is active.

Shifters should be aware of and read both of the checklists and should follow each step during the access.

three people are required to carry out a controlled access:
two workers who will make the access. Both must have been trained in the Controlled Access procedure.
one Door Operator to manage the access and keep a log of entries and exits.

Controlled access training involves:

  • being made aware of, and going over, the Shifter Controlled Entry (with and without SC permit) checklists
  • being made aware of the requirements for a controlled access to be approved (e.g. noone with pacemakers should do a controlled access
    if the SC Magnet Permit is active)
  • being made aware of the principles of the PPS system, including a discussion of the hazards managed by the PPS
  • being aware of the hazards which are NOT overseen by the PPS system
  • familiarity with the PPS components : crates, door sensors and operation of the PPS mimic
  • familiarity with the operation of the PPS system
  • training in the procedure from "Hall Ready" status to "Controlled Entry" status
  • training in performing a controlled entry
  • training in the PPS procedures with SC permit active, including the SC permit beacon and instructions on how to reinstate the Hall Search
