Default Air Force Logo Let Your Voice Be Heard, the impact of a testimonial
Over the last year, I had the opportunity to speak about Driving Under the Influence and alcohol mishap prevention at three different units on Goodfellow. In addition, I have briefed new students, not only as the chief of safety, but also as a previous squadron commander. I have yet to have a class, regardless of size, which did not have someone

Default Air Force Logo Concept of Safety
Safety is a concept we need to apply at work, home and play. It must be proactive, as opposed to reactive. When properly applied, mishaps can be greatly reduced and in some cases prevented all together. To think we can prevent all accidents at all times is not realistic. However, that doesn't mean it's something we shouldn't strive for. Where

I was digging in front of Tommy, when his shovel got caught on a tree root or something. When his shovel finally broke free, I caught its blade right across the bridge of my nose. Yep, it hurt! I was

Default Air Force Logo Exactly what is safety?
Recently I attended a class on basic safety standards in general industry. The content isn't something I was shocked by, nor did it surprise me to hear the violations that people have in the workplace, except for a few exceptions,. But what I carried away with me are some basic principles that should ring in everyone's head, every moment, of every

Default Air Force Logo Driving Fatigue
"If only they could drive like me!" "I can drive 500 miles without stopping!" Haven't we all heard these same words before?

We all need to use extreme
