2 Kennedy Space Center 140,000 acres 13,000 people (End of FY01) 1871 Total NASA Civil Servants 11,187 On/Near-Site Contractors & Tenants $1 Billion Budget

3 Safety & Health First

4 KSC Safety & Health Organizations Center Director S&H Council Shuttle ( PH ) ISS/PL (UB) ELV (VA) Spaceport E&T (YA) S&MA Div Dir w/o a Safety Org SH&IA (QA) Spaceport Services (TA) S&MA Div S&FA Office S&MA PAO Implementation of Programmatic Safety Contractor Safety Oversight Institutional Safety for controlled Facilities Policy Assessments Mishaps Consultation Ombudsman Agency Health Emergency Fire Institutional Safety & Health Security Occupational Medicine & Environmental Program AA CC GG S&H Committees XA AJ OP BA S&MA Board

5 Councils, Boards, Committees Safety & Health Council (S&H Council): chaired by Center Director –Maintains an overview of KSCs safety & health programs –Establishes and directs a sub-board system –Focuses KSC expertise on S&H Program critical elements Safety & Mission Assurance (S&MA) Board: chaired by SH&IA –Integrates the work of the S&MA organizations across the Center –Assures inter-directorate communication of technical S&MA concerns Safety & Health Committees: reports to the S&H Board and/or Council –Pressure Vessel Committee –Explosives Committee –Radiation Protection Committee –Lightning Advisory Committee –Institutional Review Board (IRB) –Lifting Devices & Equipment (LDE) Committee –Safety & Health Labor Management Committee

6 Federal Spaceport Federal Spaceport Concept –Joint effort with Air Force –Quasi-Government Governing Board –Privatized utilities –Privatized Shuttle Operations –Expendable Launch Vehicle (ELV) Operations –Other NASA functions –Use of NASA facilities for commercial activities International Space Park –For organizations and suppliers who wish to do business with KSC –Outside the fence, but on KSC property

7 Other NASA Center Operations at KSC –Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) SRB Assembly & Refurbishment Facility (ARF) Parachute Refurbishment Facility (PRF) Hanger AF Complex, Hanger M and Little n (CCAFS) – SRB retrieval and disassembly operations –Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Merritt Island Launch Annex (MILA) – communications Basic Philosophy of Memorandums of Agreement (MOAs) –Tenants control their own safety & have Safety Plans –KSC has complete access –Hazardous Operations must be approved by KSC –KSC notification/insight of activities Federal Spaceport (continued)

23 Safety Metrics KSC Lost Time Injuries Frequency Civil Service KSC Lost Time Injuries Frequency Civil Service & Contractor KSC Lost Time Injuries Severity Civil Service & Contractor KSC Monthly Mishaps Civil Service & Contractor KSC Close Calls Civil Service & Contractors KSC Maximum Worktime Deviations by Civil Service Directorate KSC Maximum Worktime Deviations by Civil Service and Contractor Health/Medical Metrics Blood Lead Levels Radiation Dosimetry Hypergol Incidents REHAB Works Utilization Fitness Center Utilization SOFAS (EAP) CVD Risk Reduction Program Metrics

24 Safety and Health Metrics Overhaul 2002 Goal statement Metric description Historical data types Historical data sources Assessment Historical trends Current performance Data table Specific Organization performance data See handout for sample metrics Metrics

25 Areas Where Code QS Assistance may be Feasible Web Base IRIS 38 system users at KSC = extensive care and feeding Maximize Ease of Use = better/more comprehensive use Mishap Report Distribution/Database ? Standardized approach to contractor safety performance Measurement? Center average comparison SIC comparison Code QS Assistance

26 Areas Where Code QS Assistance may be Feasible (cont.) Repository/web for Center Program Information Fund testing of DDESB SAFER Model Advisor and advocate to the new Administrator relative to current NASA safety performance and for use of new tools such as PEP survey
