Fort Huachuca excelled in safety for fiscal year 2013, or FY 2013, earning the U.S. Army Safety Excellence Streamer Award. It recognizes the efforts and dedication put forth by the Garrison to create a positive safety culture.

“[The U.S. Army Safety Excellence Streamer Award] means a lot because it shows that the organization is doing what it’s supposed to be doing. It’s a requirement for us to be safe, so we’re doing that and getting recognized for it from our higher headquarters [Installation Management Command],” Daniel Orta, installation safety director, explained.

The award documents multiple safety achievements. These include 12 months without experiencing a Class A or Class B accident and 100 percent completion of Composite Risk Management training for U.S. Army Garrison Soldiers and employees. In addition, Fort Huachuca completed the Army Readiness Assessment Program for FY 2013 and two installation level Safety Stand Down Days for FY 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Another achievement involved development of Collateral Duty Safety Officer and Additional Duty Safety Officer programs which provide tools to improve hazard identification and safety culture.

According to Orta, these accomplishments reflect greatly upon the safety office.

“It shows that your organization is doing the right things as far as ensuring risk management, making sure your employees or Soldiers are safe, whether in the field, work-side, at home, off duty or on duty,” he said.

Once received, the U.S. Army Safety Excellence Streamer Award will be displayed on the Fort Huachuca Guidon.
