Revision Letter Number Fifteen
With this memorandum, we are announcing the new online Safety Policies and
Procedures Manual. We are replacing the old paper and Gopher versions with
two more up-to-date online manual formats. To access the new manual, point
your WWW browser (e.g., Netscape) to the following location:
You may view a text-only version in HTML (hypertext markup language)
or a text and graphics version in PDF (portable document format). Obtain
or download Adobe Acrobat Reader to read the PDF version of the SPPM. At
our WWW site, we have included a link to facilitate downloading Acrobat
Reader. (Adobe does not charge for Acrobat Reader. )
This office will no longer distribute paper manuals or send out paper revisions.
If you wish to maintain your existing paper copy, we suggest that you print
pages from the online PDF version. The PDF pages look like the existing
hard-copy manual pages and include the forms and form samples. If you no

of Procedures and Forms at ITB 3089, mail code 1225.
The online manual includes all sections formerly available in the paper
manual with the exception of the Subject Index. Use the search functions,
tables of contents, and Forms Index to find information and forms.
The new online capability will give us the ability to instantly update sections as required,
reducing the lag period between development and distribution of polices and procedures. With
online distribution, you will no longer wonder whether you have the most recent pages in your
