The Safety Officer
Figure  1-4.—Typical  afloat  safety  organization. RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE LOCAL SAFETY  PROGRAM The chain of command manages the local safety program, since that is a command responsibility. Each command   level   and   supervisory   level   has responsibilities   for   supervising   both   routine   and specialized tasks. The  commander,  commanding  officer,  or  officer  in charge has ultimate responsibility for safety matters within his or her unit. He or she appoints a safety officer or   safety   manager   to   help   carry   out   day-to-day safety-related  activities.  The  duty  of  the  safety  officer or  safety  manager  is  to  make  sure  all  personnel understand and strictly enforce all prescribed safety precautions. Afloat, the safety organization extends from the commanding officer down to the most junior sailor. Each  department  and  division  on  board  ship  has  safety program  responsibilities.  Ashore,  although  bases  and tenant  commands  are  staffed  with  military  or  civilian safety  professionals,  the  safety  organization  includes every worker. AFLOAT  SAFETY  ORGANIZATION U.S.  Navy  Regulations  charges   commanding officers  with  absolute  responsibility  for  the  safety, well-being,  and  efficiency  of  their  commands.  The surface ship or submarine safety officer reports directly to the commanding officer on safety matters. The safety officer  reports  to  the  executive  officer  about administrative  matters.  The  safety  officer  assignment may be a primary or collateral duty, depending on the type of ship and its size. The  commanding  officer  assigns  a  collateral  duty safety officer on all submarines and surface ships with a crew of less than 500 personnel. All aircraft carriers; amphibious  assault  ships—general  purpose  (LHA), multipurpose (LHD), and helicopter (LPH); and fast combat support ships (AOEs) assign a line officer as the primary  duty  safety  officer.  Repair  ships  (ARs), destroyer  tenders  (ADs),  and  submarine  tenders  (AS) assign an industrial hygiene officer as the primary duty safety  officer.  Aircraft  carriers—both  multipurpose (CVs)  and  nuclear  propulsion  (CVNs)—assign  an industrial hygiene officer as the assistant safety officer. Readiness groups and squadrons serve in a primary duty billet  as  the  staff  safety  officer. 1-10
