Our Mission:

Naval Air Facility Atsugi Safety-NAVOSH Department supports core mission commands, NAF Atsugi, NSF Atsugi, and CNRJ Atsugi, and provides CNIC Base Operating Support (BOS) supplier safety support services, Occupational Safety and Health (OSH), Recreation and Off Duty Safety (RODS), and traffic safety (including regional motorcycle training support and a first time driver program) programs for Navy and non-Navy eligible receiver (tenant) commands and activities. Beginning with our solid foundations of NAF Atsugi's Mission, Vision, and Guiding Principles, we then accomplish these tasks by applying and exercising the four elements of our Safety and Health Management System (SHMS): Management Leadership and Employee Involvement, Work Site Analysis, Hazard Prevention and Control, and Safety and Health Training.

In addition, the NAF Atsugi Safety-NAVOSH Department provides Privately-Owned Vehicle (POV) USFJ Form 4EJ Operator’s Permit (SOFA license) licensing program services (including new and experienced motorcycle permit and license endorsements and hosts a first time teen and adult driver program) to all SOFA Article I personnel assigned to NAF Atsugi and its tenant commands.

Finally, the NAF Atsugi Safety-NAVOSH Department administers an Explosives Safety Management Program (ESMP) for host, tenant, and visiting activities engaged in and supporting the storage, handling, transportation, and overall management of Arms, Ammunition and Explosives (AA&E). The Explosives Safety Officer (ESO) manages the ESMP.
