Skunkworks, Team 1983, Safety and Health Program, 2007 - 2008
by: Bob Steele

The Skunkworks Safety and Health Program (SSHP) consists of four elements. No one element is more important than the others because the entire program must function in unison to be successful. These elements are: Coach/Mentor Commitment and Team Involvement, Shop and Pit Job Safety Analysis, Hazard Prevention and Control, and Training and Education. It is expected that this criteria will be adhered to by the coach, mentors and team.

AHS Skunkworks FIRST robotics Team 1983 is only a second year team but our support from our community has been outstanding with 17 mentors, 38 students, parents and faculty committed to the FIRST vision. To fully utilize this level of support and rise to the expectations of our community we have set our goal to be a premier FIRST team, supporting all aspects of the FIRST vision with focus on mentoring and advancing FIRST in the Pacific Northwest region. This lofty goal requires a robust organizational approach that adapts to FIRST goals and team limitations inherent of volunteer organizations.

We are submitting for review and comment our team planning documents as developed by our Systems Integration Team of students and mentors. We see this as the first step in a continuous improvement process that we intend to share with the FIRST community.

The entire Safety plan (including all appendices) is available on our website The appendices are too large to put here. Please visit the website for this information. All of our planning documents are available thereā€¦thanks!!!

Team 1983 has also posted our Safety and Health plan for public use, and comment. Please feel free to download it and make it your own. We do request that you inform us if you find the information useful, or if you have suggestions on how we can further improve them. We were able to take the Entrepreneurship and Safety awards at the Oregon regional with these materials. We hope that they will prove helpful for you as well. We also encourage you to check out our business plan and management plan in the white papers section. Thanks!
