Berkeley Lab is located above UC Berkeley, on 202 acres that house over two million square feet of state-of-the-art scientific centers and support facilities. The Lab's mission encompasses many scientific fields, and its buildings include supercomputing facilities, genetic sequencing labs, laser labs, microscope facilities, and office complexes. Thirteen Nobel Prizes have been associated with Berkeley Lab.
Support site-wide HEC LOTO program to preserve the safety of individuals involved with servicing, operating, constructing, modifying, or maintaining site facilities and utility systems within the applicable scope.

Support field implementation of HEC LOTO permits to site facility and utility systems.
Meet with customers and related stakeholders to understand their job requirements/objectives and then partner with HEC Supervisor to determine and document the appropriate work scope.
Review and act as quality assurance and quality control to maintain HEC LOTO permits in coordination with the HEC Supervisor and Division Electrical Safety Officer and LOTO Program Manager.
Assist HEC Supervisor with the implementation and maintenance of the configuration control database to track normal and out-of-position mechanical and electrical systems, as well as restored configuration post-LOTO operation.
May be required to work overtime/off hours as necessary to support the HEC Supervisor with LOTO's supporting high voltage distribution outages, facilities outages, and routine maintenance of utility systems.
Develop a detailed understanding and practical working knowledge of PUB 3000, which establishes the Lab's EHS policies, and have a general understanding of major environmental mandates and regulations such as as well as DOE Orders pertinent to the environment, health and safety protection.
A minimum of 3 years of facilities maintenance experience in a complex industrial plant or laboratory facility with multiple buildings or equivalent years of experience and education.
Demonstrated knowledge in the operation of DC, LV, MV, HV systems, building electrical systems from 12V to 115KV.
Extensive knowledge of OSHA Control of Hazardous Energy LOTO 29CFR1910.
Knowledge of California Building Codes, NFPA requirements, and industry standards /practices in the Facilities Maintenance arena.
Familiarity with UBC, NEC, Fire Alarm, and Fire Code as related to commercial and industrial buildings.
Understanding of biological and chemical hazards and knowledge in the area of construction safety consistent with OSHA, NEC, etc., and other industrial standards.
Working knowledge of how electrical and mechanical utilities are installed both inside and outside of buildings and have the ability to read and interpret contract drawings in all engineering disciplines which includes single-line electrical diagrams, natural gas, water, and sewer piping diagrams.
Familiarity with industrial facilities electrical and mechanical utility systems.
Extensive experience and broad knowledge of facility maintenance and repairs.
Additional Desired Qualifications:
Working knowledge of software applications such as Microsoft Word, Bluebeam, Quickbase, and Maximo.
Extensive experience in building maintenance and repairs, and crafts including carpentry, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, roofing, general maintenance, and labor, etc.
Experience planning multi-craft industrial and underground utilities repairs LOTO's.
Experience with underground utilities, clean room, and/or research laboratory construction.
This is a full-time, career appointment, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
Salary is commensurate with experience.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
