The Army's Official Safety Newsletter, 26 Feb 2014

Early in my career, I was told by a sage instructor pilot to be careful when I go on an extended training cycle, operation or deployment. “Be careful, because you are going to get good,” he said. “Being good is one thing, but you have to be careful because it can breed overconfidence and complacency.” I never gave much thought that overconfidence could be a bad thing. This aspect was pointed out in an after-action review one rainy night in Mosul. Going on leave, pass or TDY? Don’t forget to first complete your Travel Risk Planning System assessment. The Ground Risk Assessment Tool is an interactive, automated online system developed to augment risk management planning and decision-making for ground operations. I was eager to participate in a track meet the forward operating base was hosting. However, the meet was that day, and I wasn’t in my best shape because of my unit’s operating tempo. Still, I felt I’d be OK because I was a good runner in high school. I was wrong. On the home front, a Soldier’s “battle buddy” is often his or her family. Engaged families can make a huge difference in the safety of our off-duty Soldiers. The Family Engagement Kit provides the tools on how to become an effective battle buddy, including facts, videos, real-life stories, resources and tips. As the company safety officer, I was sometimes asked if vehicle inspections were completed. Usually, my response was, “Yes and no.” On paper, you could clearly see the inspections were done; however, I knew many had been pencil whipped by a buddy. The Know the Signs campaign is designed to heighten awareness of risk factors and provide leaders and Soldiers the tools they need to address safety issues in their unit or peer group. The signs are all around. It’s up to you to recognize and act on them.
