The Bioenvironmental Engineering Flight (BEF) provides industrial hygiene and radiation protection surveillance for industrial shops on base. BEF evaluates such hazards as noise, industrial chemical use, ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, biological hazards, ergonomics and indoor air quality, and strives to ensure that commanders and supervisors provide their workers with a safe and healthful workplace. In addition, BEF monitors the quality of base drinking water.

BEF manages industrial respirator and gas mask fit testing, issues thermoluminescent dosimeters for radiation exposure dose records and plays a principal role in base emergency response to plane crashes, chemical releases, etc.
