Default Air Force Logo Black History Month comes to a close
Black History Month closes this week and the Travis community saluted the rich African American cultural tapestry with many events during February. Please read further for some final historical notes to this fantastic month. Black History Month began in 1926.

Default Air Force Logo No-shows for appointments wastes time, money

Default Air Force Logo 911: Phoning for emergencies at Travis
The ever-changing worlds of transportation and communication — and the improvements in technology behind them — have enabled us to be a very mobile workforce. Unfortunately, these very same advances, coupled with California’s intra- and interstate highway system has a downside that underscores the problem of the Travis Team’s “mobile warriors” not

The flightline is an inherently hazardous place. Noise, foreign object damage potential, exposure to the elements and less than desirable lighting are but a few of the hazards. More often than not, flightline workers anticipate and prepare well for these hazards. However, it’s the routine operation of driving on the flightline that can present one

Default Air Force Logo Six safety tenants imperative for everyone to live by
Many of you have heard about the Tenets of Air and Space Power; things such as “centralized control and decentralized execution” or “synergistic effects.” A tenet is an opinion, doctrine or principle held as true by a person or an organization. Tenets are an essential element in establishing a culture. It goes without saying that Travis has a

Motorcycles are a great way to get to work these days when the cost of gasoline seems to be changing daily. Sky-high gas prices can certainly justify the increase in numbers of motorcycle riders; however, with the increased numbers of riders comes an unfortunate notable number of motorcycle injuries and fatalities. In fiscal 2005, there were six

Don’t have time; can’t afford safety? Here’s some food for thought the next time you’re considering taking a shortcut. In the past 15 months, Travis has sustained 54 mishaps that resulted in 755 lost workdays at a cost of more than $700,000. These numbers do not include the lost work for the two off-duty and one on-duty fatal injuries nor do they

We use personal protective equipment every day without even thinking about it. When we get in our cars, we put on our safety belts. We use an oven mitt or potholders to remove a casserole from the oven. Gloves are donned when we are clearing debris from the yard or pruning the roses. Most of us don’t think of these actions as using PPE, because we

Stop Road Rage (b/w), Illustration by W.C. Pope Being safe against aggressive driving
It does not take long to find examples of aggressive driving on our roadways. Most of us see it every day — the road racer, the distracter, the tailgater, the frequent lane changer and the red light runner. The atmosphere created by aggressive drivers is scary. Aggressive drivers display one or more of the following: -Express frustration. Drivers

Just about everyone working at Travis uses some type of equipment to perform their job.Whether it’s an aircraft loader, a table saw, an impact wrench, a forklift, a ladder or a motor vehicle, there are inherent dangers associated with all equipment. How many pieces of equipment do you use to perform your job? If you work in a shop, perform
