The Installation Safety Office is committed to serving the safety and occupational health needs of the Fort Detrick community.


The Safety Office develops installation regulations and guidelines to meet the Department of Defense and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s accident prevention plans, and to provide focus and continuity to installation-wide safety program efforts.


Base support operations include: worksite inspections, safety program management audits, system safety and engineering design and review, safety and occupational health education, hazard assessment and tracking, and accident case management, which are used to keep Fort Detrick free from recognized hazards that are likely to cause death or serious physical harm.


The Installation Safety Office works with commanders and directors in meeting mission objectives while incorporating installation safety standards. The concern for the safety of the Fort Detrick community extends beyond the work place, as safety awareness and education is provided for home and off-duty activities.


The top priority of the Installation Safety Office is to safeguard and protect service members, their families, civilian employees and Army property, as well as to create the safest workplace and living environment possible. Safety office personnel advise, audit and assist commanders and managers in executing their safety and occupational health program in order to protect the mission, prevent injury and damage, comply with the law and limit liability. The safety office also manages the installation Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course.
