NPS Honored With Chief of Naval Operations Safety Award

By MC2 Brian H. Abel

Staff in NPS’ Occupational Safety, Health and Environmental (OSHE) directorate proudly display their recently-received Chief of Naval Operations Safety Award in Herrmann Hall, July 11. The CNO Safety Awards program recognizes commands ashore and afloat for their commitment to outstanding occupational safety and health programs, and the resulting impact on mission readiness.

NPS competed Navy-wide against other shore facilities in the large, non-industrial command category.

“I just feel blessed that I had such a good group of professionals working here. Between the safety staff and the professors, they are just phenomenal at what they do, and it’s made it easy,” said NPS OSHE Director, Lt. Cmdr. Antolino Colón. “This is a group that allows work to be accomplished, because when groups stop working, we lose money, and we want to make sure that doesn’t happen.”

Safety in the Navy is paramount, Colón says, and the innovation and enthusiasm his team displayed in promoting safety contributed to the recognition. The evidence, he says, is in the OSHE department motto, ‘Readiness Through Safety.’

“What we’ve done is refocused the safety office to a customer-based approach,” Colón said. “When I came here, I looked at the purpose and mission of NPS, and how safety and environmental fit into completing it. Our goal is to serve the professors, the research staff and the students in accomplishing their mission.”
