Life Cycle Assessment and Developmental Environment Safety and Occupational Health Evaluation: Tools for Sustainment and Health (Web-based)
Environmental, safety and occupational health analyses are critical components of the Department of Defense's System Engineering Process. This presentation will describe the role of these analyses within the DoD's acquisition lifecycle framework. It will also discuss the benefits of phased assessments, beginning early in development in an effort to identify and mitigate corresponding risks. Additionally, the data developed by employing the phased approach is intended for utilization when preparing the Programmatic Environment, Safety and Occupational Health Evaluation as well as National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) assessments.
