Leaders issue risk management message

SAN ANTONIO -- The Air Force's top leaders have issued a service-wide message discussing environmental, safety, occupational health, or ESOH, risk management for Airmen to recognize and take action in their workplace.

"The Air Force ESOH vision is to be a world leader in environmental, safety, occupational health management, to provide better care for our Airmen and our environment, (and) to meet our mission in air, space, and cyberspace," said Air Force Secretary Michael Donley and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz.

The Air Force's top leaders said that Air Force priorities are compliance, risk reduction and continuous improvement. Every Airman must understand the hazards associated with their work and take action to protect themselves and their environment.

"Through these priorities we remain dedicated to the commander-in-chief's objectives for sustainability and mission accomplishment," they said.
