WSMR Command Safety Policy




1. As the Senior Commander of White Sands Missile Range, I take very seriously my responsibility in ensuring the safety and well-being of every military member, civilian employee, family member and contractor working/residing on this installation. Every leader must be accountable for the safety, occupational health of their employees. Safety performance will be reflected in all OER/NCOER's and civilian appraisals will have safety as a rating element.


2. In an era of declining resources, increasing commitments, and technological change, we must be proactive in conducting risk analysis continuously. I expect a complete risk assessment of each workplace activity be performed and potential hazards are identified and mitigated. If hazards cannot be mitigated to acceptable levels of risk, we must focus on alternatives that will allow us to complete our tasks. The Installation Safety Office stands ready to assist with this requirement.


3. The safeguarding of lives and well-being of our military and civilians are absolutely essential. I challenge every member of Team WSMR to not only develop a safety culture on-duty but also at home with your family. Operate privately owned vehicles/motorcycles safely, wear seat belts and personal protection equipment, operate home appliances and equipment according to manufacturer's specifications, and consider risks associated with leisure and sporting activities. Instill this safety culture within your families. Accidents are preventable!



 WSMR Installation Safety Office Vision Statement

We are committed to the health and safety of White Sands Missile Range employees, contractors, and the community. We believe that the only acceptable level of injuries or incidents is zero. To achieve this goal, we will continuously improve our processes, require individual accountability, and promote comprehensive safety awareness. We expect all employees to be constantly mindful of potential hazards, faithfully adhere to us safety standards and actively participate in and support the advancement of our health and safety practices. Everyone shares in the responsibility of safety.
