The focus of effort for the MCAS Camp Pendleton is to assure the safety and health of our Marines and civilian personnel by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach, and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health.
The Safety Department provides a quadrilateral formation dedicated to confronting and processing safety issues pertaining to aviation, workplace, and tactical and explosives operating environments.
The Marines We Serve
We are dedicated to the preservation of our human and material assets. We endeavor to implement and enforce federal, state, and military-unique standards designed to protect our forces and enhance unit readiness. We provide core safety services to all activities assigned to MCAS Camp Pendleton. We provide safety services where required to tenant commands and other activities aboard MCAS Camp Pendleton in the area of facilities inspections, tactical safety, and explosives safety. We conduct mishap investigations, provide workspace safety assessments, host command safety briefs and stand downs, provide safety indoctrinations to newly assigned personnel, assist in abatement of workspace hazards, inspect explosives storage facilities and operating areas, implement OSHA standards, and provide tactical safety support.
Service Improvement Plan
The Safety Department is determined to use its limited resources effectively to stimulate leadership commitment and personnel participation in comprehensive workplace safety and health programs.
Surveying Our Public
We are dedicated to improving the quality of our efforts and know that to be successful we must become a department that is driven by commitment to excellence in service. The first step is to listen and respond to our customers. Accordingly, we will conduct safety surveys to learn more about how we may better serve our Marines and civilian personnel. Because workplace inspections are one of the Safety Department’s principal activities and because voluntary efforts to improve working conditions ultimately depend on strong enforcement, our surveys will focus primarily on inspection processes.
