OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH POLICY STATEMENT
As Commander, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, I am personally committed to ensuring the safety of every military member and civilian employee within the command. Together we share the responsibility to reduce injuries and illness, and to improve quality of life.
POLICY: Every military member, civilian employee, and contractor at this command SHALL:
- Recognize that YOU hold the key to your safety and to those around you. Integrate safety into your daily life both on and off duty.
- Expect each supervisor to place safety first. Supervisors must ensure personnel have the knowledge and tools necessary to carry out the job successfully and safely.
- Accept no unnecessary risk. If you see a hazardous condition, take action. Report it to your supervisor or your safety representative. Never ignore an unsafe situation; it may cost a shipmate's life.
- Adhere to established safety rules and procedures. Think proactively throughout the work process to accomplish the mission safely.
- Formally identify and abate deficiencies. Use established procedures and processes, including ESAMS, to ensure timely corrective action take place.
- Utilize ORM. Reduce or eliminate risk factors associated with work tasks and recreational activities by practicing operational risk management on a daily basis.
I urge each and every one of you to review your responsibilities in support of the Occupational Safety and Health Program. Under no circumstance shall a worker be subjected to restraint, interference, coercion, discrimination or reprisal for exercising his or her rights to purposefully participate in the Command Navy and Occupational Safety Program.
Safety is essential to readiness and shall be rigorously practiced throughout the command.
This policy shall be posted on all official bulletin boards.
Captain, U.S. Navy
