"Keeping our troops safe every second"
The Safety Department provides NAVOSH support to the Commanding Officer, Naval Base Point Loma and tenant commands as appropriate. Areas of responsibility include mishap investigation, reporting and recordkeeping, workplace inspections, hazardous material control and management, employee reports of unsafe/unhealthful working conditions, relations with federal OSHA officials, and training.
Our customer’s satisfaction is our primary focus and we continuously seek creative and cost effective solutions with our customers to increase service excellence.
In today’s society, at work and in our personal lives, we face the unenviable task of having to collaborate with a constantly changing economy that’s dramatically affecting our nation. In order to get things accomplished in an effective manner, each of us will have to develop different ways of looking at previous concerns and identify new processes to deal with future issues. In essence what this means is that we will need to better understand what motivates and engage individuals to work together to accomplish the common goals.
Enterprise Safety Applications Management System (ESAMS), for CNRSW, tracks all safety program requirements for each command supported by the safety office. ESAMS main page contains help documents for each module such as TRMS, Inspections, Hazard Abatement, Mishap Reporting and on-line Training.
Submit supervisor mishap reports for both injuries property damage and near miss incident. Also, all safety training requirements can be satisfied by via ESAMS on-line safety courses.
SAFETY TIP OF THE WEEK:
Are Pests Getting Pesky?
Protect your workplace. Pests like cockroaches and rodents know no boundaries. They'll make a home in your workplace if you don't take steps to repel pesky pest invasions. They say cockroaches could survive a nuclear holocaust, so is it any surprise that they sometimes defy our best efforts to keep them out of the workplace?
Fruit flies, fungus, gnats, ants, spiders, rodents, and other pests—even bed bugs—can periodically find their way in as well.
However, the situation goes from bad to worse when employees take matters into their own hands, bringing in cans of insect-killing chemicals. Pesticides are toxic and should not be brought into the workplace or used without the supervisor's knowledge and approval.
All employees can help make the workplace less attractive to pests if they will:
* Be fruitless. Many pests are attracted to fruit. Workers should not leave fruit in or on their workstations overnight. Rather, they should take it home or store it in the refrigerator.
* Put a lid on it. Nonperishable or dry snacks should be kept in sealed containers, not in plastic bags.
* Do the dishes. Dishes and utensils soiled by food attract pests. Dishes should be washed after each meal break or shift.
* Clear the decks. Dirty surfaces also attract pests. Counters should be wiped down at the end of lunch or a shift.
* Bag it. Food wastes should be disposed of in garbage cans that have plastic liners. These cans should be emptied each night.
* Pick it up. Clutter provides hiding and nesting places for pests, including rodents. Employees should keep their work areas clutter-free and store items off the floor.
* Learn good plant care. Workplace plants are beneficial unless they become infested with gnats. To prevent this, do not overwater plants. Plants infested with gnats should be removed from the workplace.
Dealing with Pest Problems
Rather than treating test problems on their own, employees should let their supervisor or building manager know about a pest or sanitation issue as soon as it is discovered.
* Workers should report spills, plumbing leaks, or areas that need cleaning.
* When reporting a pest problem, employees should make a note of the evidence they've seen, including droppings, damage by the pest, or the pest itself, as well as where and when they made these observations. The more information employees can provide, the more effectively a pest problem can be dealt with.
