On the Linear IFMIF/EVEDA Prototype Accelerator (LIPAc), the engineering validation up to 9MeV by employing the deuteron beam of 125mA are planning at the BA site in Rokkasho, Aomori, Japan. Since the deuteron beam-power is achieved to a 1 MW level, and $$gamma$$-ray and neutron is a critical issue. An establishment for safety management is indispensable to reduce radiation exposure for personnel and radio-activation for accelerator components. For this purpose, Personnel Protection System (PPS) of LIPAc control system, which works together with the radiation monitoring system and the access control system and etc., are applied. In this article, three function of personnel access control, radiation monitoring and operation control of the LIPAc for safety management will be presented in details.
