  To improve reliability and reduce faults of Personal Safety System (PSS) at Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF), two types of system maintenances were carried out since SSRF completion in 2009. The maintenances include maintenance during machine operation and that during shutdown period. The failures of the PSS are summarized for last 3 years operation, and the causes of these failures are analyzed. Main failures were occurred in the access control system and UPS power-supply mode during last 3 years operation. To treat these failures, detail maintenance plan and system upgrading schemes were carried out. After the maintenance and system upgrading, the numbers of beam shutdown which caused directly by the PSS failures are obviously reduced. It was 4 times beam shutdown in 2009 and 0 in 2011.

  Dalian Coherent Light Source (DCLS) is in the design phase currently and will be constructed in Dalian from 2013. It is a seeded HGHG-FEL, mainly consisting of one 300 MeV electron linear accelerator and one undulator. Radiation safety is one of the most important tasks for Dalian FEL. Radiation safety interlock system (RSIS) is designed to prevent personnel exposure to high radiation levels, based on the As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principle. RSIS controls access to the radiation protection areas and monitors safety devices. Only if all the radiation safety conditions are satisfied, then the facility will be permitted to operate. Once any condition is broken, RSIS will send a signal to stop the electron beam immediately to guarantee radiation safety. The core component of RSIS utilizes Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), which is a proven and reliable technology in the field of industrial automatic control. All safety-relevant functions of RSIS are implemented with fail-safe components. The hard wiring cable of the peripheral signals for the safety-relevant functions is redundant. The safety interlock signals are sent via a fail-proof protocol and transferred redundantly.

  The shielding calculations for Advanced Proton Therapy Facility (APTRON), which is under design in Shanghai, were carried out. The thickness of radiation shielding walls for the accelerator and treatment rooms of APTRON were determined by Monte Carlo simulation and empirical formula. Beam loss scenarios and workloads of different energy at LINAC, synchrotron, beam transport line and treatment are given for the calculations. The calculations were carried out for the proton energy of 150MeV, 220MeV and 250MeV, and the targets of iron and equivalent tissue material. Source terms and attenuation length were calculated with different angles by the simulation using FLUKA code. Based on the source terms and the attenuation length, the thickness of the bulk walls were determined. Local shielding and maze design were also concerned.
