Safety Messages

Privately Owned Weapons Safety

As your units get ready to conduct safety briefings and training soon, consider using the following:

1) Small Unit Leader Cards (pdf found here) - designed to be printed out and carried in a pocket, this tool assists junior leaders in providing a safety brief.  Contains useful mishap statistics, talking points, and can be modified to include local high-risk areas.

2) The Off-Duty Safety Awareness Presentation - don't task anyone in your unit to build a safety brief or lead safety training without having them check out this resource first.  Professionally constructed each year, it has a little bit of everything; driving, POW handling, alcohol use, etc.  with powerful supplemental, attention grabbing videos.  It can be tailored to the topics you want to focus on.

3) Travel Risk Planning System (TRiPS) - not a requirement anymore, but still available for Soldiers to use.  I'd consider having first term, newly licensed, or first-time car owners use TRiPS with their first line supervisor before starting a long Holiday road trip.
