29494 Unexploded (UXO) Safety Escort

The UXO Escort is responsible for the safe escort of non-UXO qualified personnel who are not directly involved in specific UXO clearance site work, but have activities to perform within restricted/exclusion areas. Such personnel may include, but are not limited to contractor personnel involved in the UXO cleanup, cultural visitors, surveying personnel, equipment operators, archaeologists, conserva- tionists, geologists, news media, visiting Government personnel, and other personnel as directed. The UXOS escort ensures safety during the transit of persons being escorted by scanning visually in the immediate path of the escorted party, and redirecting the party as necessary to avoid unexploded ordnance and other hazards. The escort function involves hazard recognition and avoidance only, not the execution of UXO search or clearance actions. This position requires UXO training qualifications.
