The Chief of Naval Operations has recognized Naval Base San Diego for safety excellence with the service’s 2018 CNO Shore Safety Award.
“Another great win for the greatest base on the planet,” said Capt. Roy Love, the base’s commanding officer.
The annual award recognizes a military installation for the overall quality of its safety program, mishap prevention records and contributions to the Navy’s safety program.
“The Naval Base San Diego safety team takes an aggressive, proactive approach to catching and correcting safety deficiencies and providing training to base personnel, and we couldn’t have won the award without the base’s willingness to adhere to safety training and procedures,” said Scott Poston, director of the base’s occupational safety and health installation program.
The base’s safety team performed a total of 350 annual occupational safety and health inspections, weekly zone inspections, and unsafe/unhealthful reports during the 2018 fiscal year.
Base personnel submitted more than 3,614 safety-related issues via phone calls and emails, demonstrating the active commitment of everyone on the base to promoting a safe work environment, according to the Navy.
