Safety

Policy Statement / 5100 - N35 - 04 Aug 2020
The command will establish and maintain an aggressive Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Program. Managers and supervisors will ensure they understand their safety responsibilities and will proactively make safety a part of the workplace culture.

Injuries and occupational illnesses are preventable, but they can't be prevented unless everyone makes an effort to protect themselves, their fellow workers, our customers, and government property. Individual commitment will eliminate mishaps and improve our quality of service.

All U.S. Naval Support Activity Naples, Italy and Tenant Command personnel will strive to establish and maintain their workplaces, free from hazardous conditions. We must all make a deliberate effort to institute Risk Management as part of the daily routine in the interest of mishap prevention.

All personnel shall promptly report all occupational injuries and illnesses to their immediate supervisor. Military mishaps, on and off duty, must be immediately reported via the appropriate chain of command. Be an active participant in the Safety Program.

As your Commanding Officer, I urge each and every one of you to make Safety your highest priority. You are not to be subjected to interference, coercion, discrimination or reprisal for exercising your rights and responsibilities under the safety and health program.

This policy shall be posted on all official bulletin boards.
STEWART, JAMES W.
Captain, U.S. Navy
Commanding Officer

Area Orientation

Brand new to NSA Naples?
If you arrive on the Rotator Flight you will receive a mandatory Driving in Italy brief on Day 3 of Indoctrination. This briefing is required training prior to testing for your NATO/SOFA Italian Drivers License (A MUST TO DRIVE A VEHICLE REGISTERED WITH THE BASE). To receive the NATO/SOFA Italian Drivers License you must be on orders, 18 years of age or older, have a valid drivers license from the United States or Other country and successful pass the Motor Vehicle Registration Office Licensing Exam. 

If you do not arrive on the Rotator Flight you must contact the Base Safety Office or the Indoctrination Office to obtain the time and date of the next available training.
 
Exchange of Information for Traffic Accidents:
By Italian Law, should you have a Traffic Incident, no matter how minor, you are required to exchange insurance information with the other vehicle operator. Base police nor Base ambulance can be dispatched off base to an incident unless requested by the local police. In almost all cases of injuries you will have local police and ambulance arrive at the scene, you can call the Non-Emergency Dispatch number on the Naples Area Contact Card to get in touch with the Base Italian Investigator (India 7). India 7 is on call 24/7 and they speak Italian and English, if they are able, they may respond to the scene to assist. At a minimum they will translate over the phone for you and inform you and the other operator of the required actions. If you need to report to a Police Station off the installation the India 7 will coordinate that appointment and accompany you to the Police Station.
