The U.S. Navy has created a new management system to comply with safety requirements at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility.
PSNS & IMF's new safety management system includes job hazard analyses, health policy, technical instruction and other efforts, Naval Sea Systems Command said Friday.
“This system provides a foundation for the safety culture that is expected and demanded in our complex work environment,” said Cody Matheson, deputy director for environment, safety and health at PSNS & IMF.
A signing event took place Friday to formalize the system's establishment with the attendance of Safety Executive Steering Committee members and PSNS & IMF officers.
PSNS & IMF's Environment, Safety and Health Office will implement and oversee the new safety system.
