Working Safely at KEK
Earthquake Safety When an earthquake greater than 3 on the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) seismic scale (roughly 4.0 magnitude) is detected, an Earthquake Early Warning (EEW; based on seismic intensity and arrival time) will be announced at the KEK campus in Japanese (note: warning timings are dependent on conditions so exact notifications will vary).
In the event of an earthquake:
» Do not panic.
» Secure your position under a strong desk or table.
» Keep your head and neck covered as much as possible.
After an earthquake:
» Be aware that falling objects can create added hazards, evacuate your area carefully and only if an exit can be made safely.
» If safe to do so, open windows and doors to enable exits. Be careful of using window exits as there may be broken glass.
» Once outside, report to an assigned KEK Temporary Gathering Area.
For additional information, KEK offers A Guide for the Safety of You and Your Family When an Earthquake Strikes (available in the KEK Users Office or online at http://usersoffice.kek.jp/eng/helpful.html).
