REDSTONE ARSENAL, Alabama – Two U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command team members were recognized for keeping their fellow teammates safe.

Steven D. Moseley, facility operations manager with the USASMDC Deputy Chief of Staff, Engineer Construction Division, and Arthur A. Lampert, security specialist with the SMDC G34 Protection Division, were nominated by the SMDC Safety Office as individuals who have demonstrated exemplary leadership or made a significant contribution to Army readiness through risk management. They were selected by the Department of the Army Safety Office and both received a Director of Army Safety Risk Management Safety Award during a ceremony, March 3, at the SMDC headquarters on Redstone Arsenal.

The Director of Army Safety Risk Management Award is a Department of the Army-level unit safety award.

“The command Safety Office was proud to nominate Mr. Steve Moseley and Mr. Art Lampert for the Director of Army Safety Risk Management Award,” said Bobby Taylor, SMDC command safety manager. “These two individuals go above and beyond to ensure the safety of our workplaces and make significant contributions to the safety of their fellow employees. The safety of our workforce is essential and we are committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for all of our employees.”

During his duties Lampert facilitates emergency operations within the command and with other emergency managers to navigate through potential security and communication obstacles to provide sufficient infrastructure needed for all SMDC employees to remain safe and secure during a tornado or severe weather event. His insight and guidance were instrumental in establishing the command’s Emergency Action Plan.

“It is very humbling to be submitted for and receive this award,” Lampert said. “Mitigating risk and ensuring business is conducted safely has always been a point of emphasis throughout my career. My military and civilian career have centered on Army law enforcement and security. My focus has always been to remain vigilant yet low-key, ensuring smooth daily operations while maintaining a safe and secure environment. Security operations should be transparent to the building occupants.

“Conducting daily operations and mission support in a safe common sense manner helps ensure people make it home at the end of the day,” he added. “Personnel are an essential resource, and we need them back at work tomorrow. In addition, the organization’s overall mission is impacted if operations are not conducted as safely and securely as possible, given operational considerations.”

While leading the command’s facility operations team, which is supported by building managers, custodial staff, installation public works, and construction contractors in both Huntsville and Colorado Springs, Colorado, Moseley ensures the headquarters facilities support command operations and provide a high quality, professional environment for the workforce.

“I am very honored and humbled to receive this award, I was not aware I had been submitted for it,” Moseley said. “Throughout both my Army and Army civilian career, safety has always been paramount. Especially now during the COVID pandemic, my team and I strive to ensure that all SMDC buildings remain clean at all times for the safety of the employees.”

The team’s efforts include executing sanitizing any building or portion of the building in which an employee who tested positive has occupied immediately upon notification.

“A special thanks to my team of contractors: Aaron Batz, Jeff Cowart, Julian Todd, Tyler Hinkle, Philip Patton, Jason Mylen and Braxton McGhee,” Moseley added. “They have all been in the buildings with me from Day 1 of the COVID pandemic. Throughout these last two years, I would not have been able to keep the facilities in the operational state then are in without them.”
