The mission of the NAS Patuxent River Safety Department is to implement the Safety and Occupational Health program for all activities within the fence lines of NAS Pax River, Navy Recreation Center Solomons and Webster Outlying Field.
The Safety Department provides a comprehensive safety program consisting of, at a minimum, annual facility inspections of all occupational areas, mishap investigations, hazard analysis and identification, safety training on a variety of topics, and holiday and seasonal awareness campaigns. The Safety Department also manages all programs outlined within the OPNAVINST 5100.23 series.
The Safety Department uses an effective, proactive approach of working with supervisors to determine and implement solutions for immediate and long-term solutions to safety related concerns. This partnership between the Safety Department and the activities it serves is reflected in the effectiveness of the overall Safety Program at NAS Pax River.
