Formal safety courses are available through the Naval  Safety  School  located  at  the  Naval  Air  Station, Norfolk,   Virginia.   The   school   currently   provides shore-oriented safety courses available to military and civilian personnel. For a list of courses, quotas, and convening   dates,    contact   Quota   Control   at (804) 445-8778 or Defense Switched Network (DSN) 565-8778.

Shore  safety  supervisors  receive  specific  training  as well  as  orientation,  monthly,  and  annual  refresher training on the activity’s OSH Program. Supervisory personnel  also  receive  training  on  how  to  manage  the activity’s OSH Program at the work unit level. In this training,   they   learn   how   to   train   and   motivate subordinates  to  develop  safe  and  healthful  work practices. They also learn how to integrate occupational safety  with  job  training.  Other  OSH  training  for supervisory  personnel  involves  the  following  areas: OSH  performance  measurement Job  hazard  analysis Enforcement of NAVOSH standards Mishap  investigation The use and maintenance of personal protective equipment Hazardous material control and management (HMC&M) Safety and Health Reference Library The  safety  supervisor  uses  educational  and promotional materials such as posters, films, technical publications,  pamphlets,  and  related  materials.  These materials  help  promote  the  reduction  and  prevention  of workplace-related  accidents  and  injuries. Each shore activity is required to maintain a suitable safety and health reference library. The local OSH office usually maintains this library. Although  the  local  office  normally  supplies  the activity with educational and promotional materials, it can simply provide the activity with information on how to procure the materials. Some materials are purchased through   the   National   Safety   Council   or   similar organizations.  Films  and  video  tapes  are  available through the Naval Education and Training Support Centers on a temporary or permanent custody basis. These centers are located on each coast. They may be contacted  at  the  following  addresses  or  phone  numbers: Naval  Education  and  Training  Support  Center, Atlantic Code N5, Bldg.
