ELI-ALPS will be the first large-scale attosecond facility accessible to the international scientific community and its user groups. The facility-wide Personnel Safety System (PSS) has been successfully developed and commissioned for the majority of the laboratories. The system has three major goals. First, it provides safe and automatic sensing and interlocking engineering measures as well as monitoring and controlling interfaces for all laboratories in Building A: emergency stop buttons, interlock and enabling signals, door and roller blind sensors, and entrance control. Second, it integrates and monitors the research technology equipment delivered by external parties as black-box systems (all laser systems, and some others). Third, it includes the PSS subsystems of research technology equipment developed on site by in-house and external experts (some of the secondary sources). The gradual development of the system is based on the relevant standards and best practices of functional safety as well as on an iterative and systematic lifecycle incorporating several internal and external reviews. The system is implemented with an easily maintainable network of safety PLCs.
