Working safely and reporting unsafe conditions

g. Keeping the study/working area neat and clean h. Reporting to duty on time and in correct uniform i. j. Safety Preventing course material compromise Following the directions of the instructor

Care of soldiers is a leadership function and safety is essential in caring for soldiers. Safety will not be sacrificed for realism during training. Safety of personnel must be a primary consideration in planning and conducting training. Prior to all training, cadre and students will be briefed thoroughly on applicable safety procedures, potential accident producing conditions, and hazards that may be encountered. Unusual vehicle, water, and weapons safety considerations, and environmental hazards in training areas will be stressed prior to and during the training. The training cadre must be proactive and aggressive in reducing and preventing training injuries and fatalities. 1. All training institutions will have a safety officer appointed and on site for all TSPs with approved risk assessment of medium or higher. Multiple training sites will require additional safety officers. Safety considerations are outlined in each TSP and must be strictly adhered to at all times. Each instructor will integrate the appropriate safety/caution statement into the presentation of each learning objective. The key elements of safety in training are: a. Instructor establishes safety standards for each task. b. Instructor identifies unsafe acts, conditions, or hazards. c. Student performs the task to the prescribed standards.

3.

d. Instructor evaluates the students performance. 4. Soldiers at all skill levels must understand their individual responsibilities for safety, be able to recognize unsafe acts, and know how to report them to leaders.
