    • Army aviation: A safety evaluation Fri, 24 Jun 2016 00:00:00 EDTThere's a lot of good news for the Army with respect to preventing loss through proactive risk management. Accidental fatalities continued their decade-long decline and reached record lows during fiscal 2015. Most notable for last fiscal year -- the safest on record to date -- we saw substantial decreases in fatalities due to weapons and explosives mishaps (down 67 percent), motorcycle accidents (down 24 percent), and crashes in private motor vehicles (down 38 percent). We attribute this steady decline to steadfast efforts by Army leaders at all levels. Senior commanders are holding junior officers and safety professionals accountable for their comprehensive safety programs and execution of prudent risk management under the mission command framework. Soldiers themselves are modifying their behavior and becoming more safety and risk conscious than ever before. We've been promoting awareness and risk reduction measures for individuals and organizations in both their on- and off-duty activities, and it's encouraging to see their effects on preventing unnecessary loss.
