EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Summary

** This annual safety program assessment and facilities inspection meets and satisfies the mandatory safety requirements of AFI91-202. **

1. Upon completion of the inspection, 387th AEG Safety has 15 days to complete the inspection report for Commander coordination.

2. All noted program and facility (if applicable) findings from this report require corrective actions. Once the report is received by the unit, corrective actions must be sent to the safety office within 30 days.

3. Upon receipt of the report, the Unit Safety Representative (USR) will ensure all appropriate functional/facility managers receive a copy of the safety inspection report. Each noted finding requires a reply.

4. Observations do not require reply, but should be addressed in a timely manner. The USR will consolidate responses and forward corrective actions taken or planned, along with an estimated completion date (ECD), to the safety office. If a work order request was submitted, enter the work order number, and the date the work request was submitted to base CE. Submission of a work request is NOT considered a closing action; only when the item is actually corrected.

5. Each open finding requires follow-up and a status sent to Group Safety by the workcenter supervisor every 30 days until all actions are completed. Once finding is corrected this will be verified by Group Safety and officially closed in the report.
