Periodicals come in many variations. They maybe
bulletins, magazines, messages, or publications. The
periodicals that we discuss in the following paragraphs
will bring you updates on equipment, safety items, and
overall information that could affect you as an ET.
SHIPS SAFETY BULLETIN
The SHIPS SAFETY BULLETIN is published by the
Naval Safety Center in Norfolk, Virginia. It is
distributed on a monthly basis. Since it is a safety
bulletin, the issues should be kept in a binder in the work
center for reference.
This bulletin covers all aspects of safety
information, from electrical safety shoes to revisions of
safety courses. If your work center does not maintain
copies of the SHIPS SAFETY BULLETIN, find out
where they are kept and review them to keep yourself
up to date on safety related items. Figure 1-2 is an
illustration of the front cover of the SHIPS SAFETY
Figure 1-3.Front cover of Safteyline magazine.
AFLOAT SAFETY ADVISORIES
Safety advisories are sent out in message format and
advise you of current and emergent safety-related items.
The Afloat Safety Advisories are available from the
Naval Safety Center, Naval Air Station, Norfolk,
Virginia, on disk in WordPerfect 5.1 or ASCII format.
Your command may contact the safety center for this
disk at DSN 564-7634.
Safetyline is a shore safety review periodical in
magazine form. It is published bimonthly by the Naval
Safety Center in Norfolk, Virginia. Safetyline is
approved as an official publication for distributing
safety-related information. This information informs
Department of the Navy personnel about current safety
concerns and emerging developments within their area
of expertise to enhance their professional development.
Although the contents of this periodical are informative,
they are not considered directive.
The Safeline presents good articles on safety and
is a beneficial addition to any shore-based ET shop
library. Figure 1-3 is a sample front cover of Safetyline.
