How to get Access to FASER locations at CERN

This page outlines the access requests, training courses and personal protective equipment (PPE) needed to access different areas at CERN which are relevant for FASER work.

Scintillator lab (21-1-067)

  • Used for calo/scintillator commissioning
  • Need personal dosimeter to go into walk in dark room area as there is a radioactive source in there (but not needed for just entering the scintillator lab)
  • Request access on for 'Common DT - LC Scintillator lab in 21-1-067' put 'FASER Commissioning' in the Reason box - needs to be approved by Sune Jakobsen
  • If you have access to ENH1 please add your name to the list:
Brian, Josh, Sam, Jamie

Lab in 161 (161/1-009)

  • Used for tracker commissioning
  • No specific access request needed

Lab in 304 (B304/R012)

  • Used for tracker commissioning (SCT module QA)
  • No specific access request needed (although need key as this is usually locked)

FASER space in ENH1

  • Used for tracker station commissioning and dry-assembly test / global commissioning
  • Need to take the following online safety trainings on
    • - Radiation Protection - Supervised Area
    • - Neutrino Platform Hall - Cryogenics
    • - Neutrino Platform Hall - Installation Phase
    • - Electrical Safety - Awareness
    • - Safety at CERN
  • Request access on for 'EHN1-NP ' put 'FASER Commissioning' in the Reason box - needs to be approved by Filippo Resnati
  • To access you need a helmet and safety shoes (and no short trousers)
  • It can be useful to have access to the tunnel from Meyrin site to France for easier access to Prevessin site - this is requested via for 'T - Tunnel Transit'
  • If you have access to ENH1 please add your name to the list:
Jamie, Jakob, Brian, Claire, Hide, Michaela, Franck, Di Wang

LHC Tunnel and TI12

  • Place where FASER will be installed

  • The following online training courses should be done (
    • CERN - Beam Facilities
    • Safety at CERN
    • LHC – Machine
    • Chemical Safety – Awareness
    • Electrical Safety – Awareness
    • Emergency Evacuation
    • Radiation Protection – Awareness
    • Radiation Protection - Supervised Area
  • Classroom courses (sign up at: ):
    • Self rescue mask training (Required for access to areas where the self-rescue mask is compulsory, is made available (SPS, LHC, experiments,)
    • Radiation Protection - Controlled Area - Initial (en) (Required for entry to any controlled area)
  • To access you need the following PPE:
    • Helmet
    • Safety shoes
    • Personal dosimeter
    • Self rescue mask
    • When the machine is filled with helium (from June 2020) you also need a personal ODH monitor.
  • Need to request access via: to 'Access to LHC Tunnel Areas' (put 'FASER Commissioning' in the Reason box)
  • You need to be on a valid IMPACT to be able to get into the tunnel (we enter through the PM15 lift)
  • If you have access to LHC Tunnel and TI12 please add your name to the list:
Jamie, Brian, Michaela, Claire, Josh, Sam, Susanne, Kristof,

Info on PPE

A reminder that in general FASER funds can not buy PPE for FASER members. Usually PPE should be provided by your institute. To buy these from CERN stores, see the relevant info below.
  • Helmet (Cern catalogue ID or similar)
  • Helmet Lamp (Cern catalogue ID 550. or similar)
  • Antistatic safety boots with steel midsole (Cern catalogue ID: 50.43.10.A, 50.43.10.B, 50.43.10.BB, 50.43.10.BC, 50.43.10.BD - you can choose out of these…)
  • Self rescue mask (SRM) and belt where required (need to pass classroom course to use) (SRM, Cern catalogue ID: and belt: (but these are expensive ~800CHF)
  • Personal Dosimeter (need to pass online training to obtain) - see:
