Survey: Where Airmen Get Information

Please take a moment to answer a few questions about the sources you find most useful when obtaining official information. The purpose of this survey is to provide the 50th Space Wing commander insight into where and how Schriever Airmen get official information. The commander will use these results to leverage current communication tools, and possibly incorporate new ones, to best serve and communicate with the base population. The survey is anonymous and completely voluntary; however, maximum participation is encouraged to engage the best possible communication tools for our audiences.

Safe and Sound week

Schriever Air Force Base is partnering with the Air Force Safety Center and Occupational Health and Safety Administration on a nationwide Safe and Sound week until Aug. 18. The campaign focuses on raising awareness and understanding of safety and health programs in the workplace.

The Air Force Safety Center is also supporting the initiative by challenging Airmen to complete three safety related actions within 30 days and then sharing it on social media.

The safety office would also request to know how many people at each unit have received the virtual OSHA coin and participated in the campaign. If Schriever AFB has multiple participating units, the Air Force Space Command chief of safety will send an actual AFSPC/Safety coin to present to the unit safety representative who piles up the most virtual coins.
