Safety Office, Naval Station Newport
1 Simonpietri Drive
The NAVSTA Newport Safety Office provides a full-service, comprehensive safety agenda consisting of 38 major occupational safety and health programs. The range of responsibility and support required is vast and covers diverse disciplines such as afloat, waterfront, shore, industrial, recreational, housing and retail.
Unlike any other Naval Station Newport department, the Safety Office is responsible for providing services to outlying naval activities in New York, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts.
The Safety Professionals utilize an effective, proactive hands-on approach that emphasizes finding solutions that help supervisors take immediate and lasting action to eliminate hazards and potential health and safety problems. This, coupled with a command structure that considers safety synonymous with mission, has resulted in an ongoing superlative safety record, and has fostered an environment for safe work, play and living for Sailors and civilian employees alike.
