TEAMS Safety Record

TEAMS has enjoyed an exemplary safety record for the past two fiscal years. This is due in large part to the commitment of management and employees to make Safety First a priority.

TEAMS employs 150-200 employees throughout each fiscal year. As you may notice, we show no days lost due to injury for two years running!

We feel proud and fortunate that we have had a couple of truly stellar years following the implementation of the Safety Journey.

Two Enterprise Units--AMSET and TEAMS worked together to assist with the effort. Recently, he Pacific Soutwest Regional Forester recognized this effort at the 2014 Pacific Soutwest Regional awards ceremony.At the time of the project, Bruce Higgins, a TEAM project liaison officer, was acting as AMSET's executive officer. AMSET staff and partners asked Bruce to provide facilitation and project management assistance to support AMSET Science team lead Scott Dailey and GIS Specialist Chris Clervi who were providing data management and analysis.  Over the course of four in-person meetings, many conference calls, and multiple document drafts, the collaborative group succeeded in completing the update in time for the August Tahoe Summit.

TEAMS International

Camilo Arias, TEAMS hydrologistCamilo Arias, TEAMS Hydrologist was recently selected by the Forest Service International Programs office to provide technical assistance in the development of a watershed monitoring network in Southern Ecuador.

We collaborated with the national university and government representatives to outline plans for data collection, management, analysis, and dissemination.

A hydro-meteorological station network would provide the real-time data, long term data needed for paired watershed studies, and help parameterize hydrological models. 

In many aspects, the international experience is similar to what TEAMS specialists do in the U.S., the difference is the landscape tropical setting, extensive land use, and the beautiful tropical flowers.
