This person will report directly to the LISC Program Manager and be responsible for implementing the Quality Management Systems, the Environmental Management Systems, and the Safety Management Systems for the USAF Launch and Test Range System (LTRS) at the Eastern and Western Launch Ranges primarily at Patrick AFB, FL and Vandenberg AFB, CA. The LTRS consists of 12 "subsystems" on each range. The LTRS Integrated Support Contract (LISC) consolidates the Operation and Maintenance of these subsystems with the depot level maintenance and sustaining engineering. The LISC Quality and Environmental, Health, and Safety (Q&EHS) Director reports directly to the LISC Program Director as an independent voice in the assessment of the overall "health" of the LISC performance team and processes. The person in this position is expected to work closely with the LISC Range Managers, Director of Engineering, and Director of Business Operations to manage the quality of operations, maintenance and engineering required to assure mission success while achieving continuous improvement in the efficiency of meeting mission requirements. The Q&EHS Director will ensure that the Quality Management System meets the intent of ISO AS9100, and will also ensure that the Safety and Environmental Management Systems meet the requirements of Federal, State, Local, Air Force, and Space Command policies, procedures, codes, and regulations.
The Q&EHS Director maintains and provides quality records, maintains training and certification records, conducts and reports on the results of audits, nonconformance, data and corrective actions. This person will also manage a self-assessment methodology for the program to collect, analyze and report performance metrics and trends.
It is expected that the LTRS will "evolve" through a strategically selected set of technical projects that will both sustain and improve systems performance. The Q&EHS Director is expected to analyze performance and maintenance records and assist the LISC leadership team in prioritizing investments to maintain mission assurance and reduce costs over time. The QEHS Director will also be expected to utilize Team EHS Professionals to assist with analyzing incident reports, close calls, near misses, and EHS-related concerns and suggestions. This will enable the QESH Director to determine trends and assist the LISC leadership team in prioritizing investments to maintain regulatory compliance, reduce safety and environmental hazards, develop methods for greater efficiency in meeting environmental requirements, and develop "greener" operations, processes, and procedures to assist the government in meeting established metrics.
