SYSTEM SAFETY  --  Optimize Safety by Controlling Risk 


Materiel Safety:


The Hill AFB System Safety Manager (SSM) is appointed as the installation Materiel Safety Manager. The purpose of this program is to ensure that all materiel related mishap recommendations related to OO-ALC are addressed and closed out in a timely manner to ensure safe and efficient systems in the Air Force. This is done through the Materiel Safety Task Group (MSTG) program, Configuration Control Board (CCB) reviews, the Air Force Safety Automated System (AFSAS) and DB10 data analysis, and more. The Hill AFB SSM ensures that tests have an independent safety reviews to ensure that the hazards have been identified and that appropriate control measures have been implemented into the test design and procedures to minimize the probability of test mishaps. The SSM determines the need for formal Safety Review Boards (SRB) to evaluate hazards, safety controls, and residual risk levels. The SSM also ensures that the right person accepts the residual risks for tests.

System Safety:

The System Safety Program at Hill AFB ensures that the appropriate risk identification and mitigation controls are implemented into systems and facilities as early on in their life cycle as possible and continuing throughout their life cycle. This involves working closely with wing system safety managers to ensure that the appropriate analyses are completed. Also provides an independent safety review to ensure that the wing system safety programs are functioning properly. 

Test Safety:

The Hill AFB SSM ensures that tests have  independent safety reviews to ensure that the hazards have been identified and that appropriate control measures have been implemented into the test design and procedures to minimize the probability of test mishaps. The SSM determines the need for formal Safety Review Boards (SRB) to evaluate hazards, safety controls, and residual risk levels. The SSM also ensures that the right person accepts the residual risks for tests.
