Risk Management Integration--Summary

To be most effective, risk management procedures should be integrated into existing commander processes which then become risk management tools (sample tools are listed in Enclosure 1). The objective is to help the commander improve what he is already doing. The procedures provide for:

1. The development of safety policy, goals, objectives and priorities for inclusion in the commander's quarterly training guidance.

2. A safety assessment, as part of the commander's training assessment, to identify force protection shortcomings (hazards) and actions to correct or control them during the planning phase of training.

3. The systematic observation and assessment of the unit's risk management and safety performance. Objective is to provide the commander sufficient information to determine whether performance met his guidance and to identify corrective actions to feed back into the training management cycle and Standing Operating Procedures (SOPs) for field and tactical operations.

4. The integration of risk management into the decisionmaking process to identify and control hazards. Continuous application of risk management procedures for unexpected hazards.
