Safety & Health Monitoring





Documents of personnel working in or on the behalf of the government that are relevant to our ESOHMS are retained. Annual physicals shall be given to all of our personnel.

Equipment





Monitoring equipment, including, but not limited to, scales, gieger counters, and Jerome mercury vapor monitors shall be calibrated and maintained according to the manufacturer's specifications or procedures as applicable. Each Depot will maintain a depot-specific equipment calibration schedule that lists each piece of calibrated equipment, required calibration frequency, date of last calibration, and deadline for next calibration. Each depot shall keep current calibrated equipment inventory and calibration schedules, updating them when new equipment is brought on-site and old equipment is removed.

While some equipment requiring calibration may not be used for years at a time, DLA Strategic Materials will continue to calibrate the equipment in accordance with manufacturer's specifications or procedures to verify that it will be in good working order for future use.
