, UNITED STATES REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala.– Security is typically determined by an absence of bad things occurring, however at the U.S. Army Materiel Command, Soldiers and civilians are being recognized for their contributions to being proactive in preventing accidents.
For William Zaharis, Security Director, Army Materiel Command, the Safety Awards are a way to acknowledge the labor force for acts that might otherwise go unnoticed.
” What really gets safety done is the user interface between Soldiers and leaders to make sure they are doing things by the book,” said Zaharis. “The Army Materiel Command Safety Awards help bring their contributions to light.”
Restricting accidents and performing daily tasks in a safe way contributes to general readiness. Adam Crafard, the safety director at Tank-automotive and Armaments Command, stated sending his organization for these awards acts as a self-check.
” I look at this as an award that captures what we have been doing as a command over the last couple of years,” said Crafard. “We have brought everybody together to work toward a typical objective.”
Winning awards like this reveals the workforce is taking on safety as a concern, Crafard said.
” It informs me safety is essential to the command, and more significantly, to the workforce,” he stated. “What we are doing is the ideal thing.”
The Army Materiel Command Security Awards accompany the Army-wide awards. Tank-automotive and Armaments Command won 3. The major secondary command won remarkable company safety award for two-star commands. Red River Army Depot received the brigade-level award. Clayton Nagel, a manager quality assurance professional and compliance officer, got the specific award for quality in safety.
” I couldn’t have won this award without the support of management, staff members and higher headquarters safety management,” stated Nagel.
Standardizing training throughout the command’s centers and implementing new programs, like the 5S program, has actually made a difference, Nagel said. The 5S program includes sorting, setting in order, shining, standardizing and sustaining devices, adding to both equipment preparedness and safety.
