The Naval Safety Command mission is to prevent mishaps, save lives, and preserve resources. The goal of the Safety Command is to provide the tools needed to enhance command safety culture, and to ensure the combat readiness of our forces and the Navy’s global war-fighting capabilities. Mishaps take a toll on our military defense and diminish our readiness costing us time and resources; damaging equipment and posing harm to our Sailors, Marines and civilians. We here at the Safety Command feel it is critical to deliver relevant, interesting and useful content that will help with the Department of the Navy's mishap-prevention and overall safety efforts. Our publications have been created by the Naval Safety Command Media team to serve as valuable tools to communicate key mission objectives that support fleet operational priorities.
These first-person "There I was" stories have been the basis for Approach since its inception. This sharing of stories also has bonded naval aviators - past and present - to one another and to the profession itself. Picture yourself with a damaged aircraft, operating in blue water with a pitching deck and enough gas for one, maybe two, approaches, and you have everything needed for a "There I was" story.
Whether you are part of the supply system or the maintenance support team, or if you are the professional who turns the wrench while working on a state-of-the-art jet or helo, MECH magazine plays a key role in mission accomplishment. With inputs from the fleet, our Naval Safety Command staff, and systems experts, MECH helps get the aircraft mission ready and flying.
