Berkeley Lab's Facilities Division has an opening for a Facilities Maintenance Planner. In this role you will organize and assess maintenance work activities and coordinate all necessary job walkdowns, hazard evaluations, permits, materials, equipment, and work order documentation necessary to perform maintenance activities. You will interface with Facility Area Managers, Engineering, EHS, Maintenance supervisors, crafts, and other organizations/disciplines as necessary to thoroughly plan work activities and ensure that all applicable standards, contract requirements, and laboratory policies and procedures are applied. You are responsible for ensuring that work control documents are developed to support safe, effective, efficient, and compliant execution of work consistent with established work practices.
What You Will Do:
Plan and coordinate maintenance work activities using the LBNL Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS).
Conduct coordinated walkdowns of work scope with the respective work leads, EHS, Facility Area Manager(s) and others as necessary to ensure scope of work is clearly understood, boundaries of the work are identified, both location based and activity based hazards are identified, permits are obtained, and materials, equipment, and manpower needs are identified.
Prepare work control documents, including a sequence of operations, that provide clear and comprehensive direction to the performing crafts and ensures that the work can be performed safely.
Evaluate preventive maintenance activities and job plans; provide technical input and advice to continuously improve the safety of work execution, the accuracy of resource estimates, and continuous improvement in operations.
Develop and/or provide technical input to new maintenance procedures to ensure compliance with national codes and regulations.
Assist in the population of the Master Equipment List by ensuring that assets are captured in the CMMS and labeled in the field as maintenance work is planned and executed.
Evaluate feedback provided by the crafts and supervision on completed preventive maintenance work orders and disposition the feedback to ensure that the issues are addressed and revise the PM work orders accordingly.
Assist in the continuous improvement of the CMMS System to establish and maintain the functionality that supports Facilities asset information and associated maintenance history.
Review completed PMs to ensure work is completed as planned. Evaluate feedback provided in completed PMs and solicit input from appropriate disciplines to address issues and revise PMs as appropriate.
Comply with Lab implementation of Department of Energy (DOE) health and safety policies and other applicable Federal, State, and local fire, health, safety, emergency-preparedness, pollution-prevention, and environmental protection policies.
Perform all work safely and be particularly aware of potentially hazardous operations or conditions.
What Is Required:
A minimum of 4 years experience in performing maintenance to enable effective planning of resources, materials and safe methods involved in proposed facilities maintenance activities; Must possess diverse experience in performing maintenance to enable effective planning of resources, materials and safe methods involved in proposed facilities maintenance activities.
Must possess knowledge and understanding of the National codes and standards for construction and maintenance work, and have experience performing work in a DOE or highly regulated environment.
Excellent communication and teamwork skills are required to effectively coordinate with FAMs, craft supervision/leads, project managers, engineering, EHS, and others to thoroughly plan maintenance activities and ensure safety is fully integrated into work control documents.
Experience and hands-on knowledge of skilled-craft work.
Experience in developing and evaluating procedures, analyzing work requirements, and developing effective and collaborative solutions applying advanced technological skills and knowledge.
Demonstrated success in the implementation of work plans, strategies, and directives in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
Knowledge of the functionality of a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) or the ability to learn within 4 months of assuming the position. Excellent customer service skills and ability to promote customer relations through partnering with customers and colleagues.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a full-time career appointment.
Full-time, M-F, 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.
