Risk Management Documents

Safety at NOAO is everyone's job. If you have a question about safety, ask your safety officer or your supervisor. If you have a concern about safety, contact your safety officer, your supervisor, or the NOAO Director's Office. 

"Effective health and safety is not 'common sense', but is based on a common understanding of risks and how to control them, brought about through good management."
(HSE 1991)
