Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) provides a low-cost national resource for the purpose of launching, flying, landing, and testing space and aeronautical vehicles and associated technologies. In order to perform these services safely, it is WFF's policy to protect the public, the NASA workforce, high-value equipment and property, and the environment from potential harm. All activities at WFF shall include safety as a fundamental element and certify readiness through a formal validation and verification review of safety requirements.

In addition, the Wallops Safety Office conducts an annual assessment of WFF workplaces to identify safety and health deficiencies and areas for improvment. The Fire Department conducts fire safety inspections of our buildings and the Safety Office encourages and supports workplace inspections by supervisors and Facilities Operations Managers (FOMs). Finally, the Safety Office provides training in safety and health, and works with supervisors to assist them in fulfilling their safety obligations.
