The U.S. Naval Support Activity Bahrain (NSAB) – Safety Department manages the Navy's Occupational Safety and Health (NAVOSH), Traffic Safety, Recreational and Off-Duty Safety, and the Explosives Safety Programs.  Services provided include mishap prevention marketing and education, annual inspections, identification of workplace hazards, and employee reports of hazards, and mishap investigation and reporting.  The office also provides educational and on-site consultations for sight & hearing conservation, personal protective equipment, confined space entry, respiratory protection, and indoor air quality for all military personnel, their dependents, and civilian employees. The Safety and Occupational Health Council is chaired by the Installation Commander and meets quarterly to pass information and discuss safety concerns of NSAB personnel.


The Safety Office also publishes a quarterly calendar of occupational and traffic safety training, including Motorcycle Safety courses required for active duty personnel, and the Driver Improvement Program (DIP) for traffic offenders.  The calendar and course registration are available through the Enterprise Safety Applications Management System (ESAMS).  


As the traffic safety program coordinator we provide training and testing for new personnel. All personnel assigned as ‘Duty Driver’ i.e. those personnel that operate a government motor vehicle (GMV) or government owned vehicle (GOV) as their primary function as well as personnel that operate a GMV/GOV in excess of 8 (eight) hours a week as part of incidental duties must attend our Driver Improvement Program tailored to the local environment.


Motorcycle Safety Coordinator: NSAB Safety provides motorcycle safety training to eligible service members. Level I (Basic Rider Course (BRC)) and Level II (Basic Rider Course (II) and Military Sport Bike Rider Course (MSRC)) are the courses available throughout the year (schedules are published on a quarterly basis.). All service members that intend to apply for an on-base parking permit must contact Safety Department seeking a ‘Letter of Authorization for Motorcycle Registration’. This process was implemented to verify the validity of the motorcycle safety training, licensing/endorsement etc. and requires the submission of the following documents:

    - Copy of driver’s license (with endorsement or appropriate approval)

    - Copy of Motorcycle registration (with local traffic authorities)

    - Copy of Insurance

    - Copy of most recent motorcycle safety training (Level I or Level II).

        o If the service member has not completed Level II then he/she is only eligible to receive an authorization for 60 (calendar) days.

        o If the level II training is expired or past the refresher training date i.e. more than 5 years since issuance, then the service member is only eligible to receive an authorization for 60 (calendar) days.


    - Licensed civilians do NOT require ‘Letter of Authorization for Motorcycle Registration’

    - Courses are generally provided on a progressive schedule i.e. each quarter starts with Level I availability, followed by Level II repeated the following two months of the quarter.

    - Classes are subject to cancellation without prior notification. (In consideration of local weather condition, number of classes provided during a year may be reduced).


Safety tracks all mishaps and occupational incidents and maintains statistical records to establish trends. Traffic is our number one focus since more employees and family members are injured or die of traffic related mishaps than from any other cause. We strive to encourage safe driving and prevent accidents associated with speeding or alcohol abuse. Safety also works to ensure what you do off the job, is done in a safe manner. We coordinate and provide trainings to ensure all employees and dependents are aware of risk associated with various local sports and outdoor activities. We have many resources and can assist you personally or as a group to make your overseas experience as safe as possible.


The Safety Department is located in Room 102A (First Floor) in Building 100 on NSA I and is open from 0730–1600 during the workweek. We can be reached at the following address and phone numbers:
