National Weather Service Safety Manual
Promoting a safe work environment is a top priority of the Earth System Research Laboratory, Global Monitoring Division (GMD) and GMD remains strongly committed to reducing safety related accidents and injuries on the work site. After careful consideration, we have selected the Safety Manual used by the NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) as our guidelines for written safety procedures. This guidance manual is comprehensive and updated periodically. Through adoption of the NWS procedures, GMD can focus on strategies and processes to better support a division-wide safety program.
