National Ignition Facility Physical Access
Access to the NIF site and buildings is controlled and limited to authorized personnel. NIF access requires approval from LLNL and the facility manager and completion of web-based classes, including site access policies and safety training. An in-person orientation tour is also mandatory. Upon completion of the courses and tour and authorization of site access, an access control card will be provided. Personnel who have not completed site access training must be escorted while on site. Personnel must remain current in required training to maintain access. Performing work (any task covered under an IWS; this does not include standard office work) on-site requires additional training. The NIF User Office, located on the first floor of B481, facilitates the site access process for visiting researchers.
