Abstract:

During the past two years Headquarters Air Force Safety Center HQ AFSC eliminated a longstanding explosives site plan ESP review backlog while keeping pace with elevated ESP submission levels throughout the 2008 - 2010 time periods. This success resulted from four actions taken by HQ AFSC to improve the ESP development, submission, and review processes. Implemented actions included publication of a revised Air Force Manual AFMAN 91-201, United States Air Force USAF Explosives Safety Standards, that clearly defines ESP submission expectations to the USAF explosives safety oversight community streamlined internal processes designed to improve HQ AFSC ESP review efficiency increased ESP review team levels at HQ AFSC that are commensurate with historical ESP submission levels and utilization of an ESP support contract to perform installation- and Major Command MAJCOM- level ESP development and associated quality review activities.
