Abstract: Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) has installed a unique high pulse-powered 2 MeV electron beam (EB) accelerator for developing industrial applications. It is capable of delivering powered EB up to 20 W average beam power (1200 kW peak pulse power) at energy 1 to 2 MeV. Safety features have been designed for safe utilization during irradiation of large scale products, safety of users, operation staff, industrial products and several types of material handling equipment. Adequate shielding is made for bremsstrahlung radiation with maximum beam energy and power. Safety for ozone emission, high voltage, RF radiation has been addressed. This paper gives an account of overall safety features incorporated in the facility.
