1 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Introduction to CAP Safety Program for New Members (Cadets and Senior Members)

2 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Introduction to CAP Safety Program for New Members (Cadets and Senior Members) Risk: risk 1. possibility of loss or injury Hazard : ha-zərd; 2. a source of danger

3 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE This presentation is an overview of Civil Air Patrols Safety program and it will cover: Safety Program Background The three components of CAPs safety program: Rules and Regulations Responsibilities Risks and Operational Risk Management How the safety program is a part of every CAP activity: Safe mission accomplishment is everyones #1 job Safety definitions Course Outline

4 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE The CAP Safety program is modeled after the Air Force program. If you want to look it up, these are in the 91 series of Air Force Instructions (AFI) – publishing.af.mil/http://www.e- publishing.af.mil/ The CAP Safety program is defined in the 62 series of CAP regulations. These clearly define the two distinct duties of CAP Commanders and Safety Officers: Safety Education Accident Prevention For More CAP Safety Program Information, you can look it up in: CAPR 20-1, Organization of Civil Air Patrol CAPR 62-1, CAP Safety Responsibilities and Procedures CAPR 62-2, Mishap Reporting and Investigation Region and Local Safety Policies Background

5 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE CAP regulations govern all levels of the CAP Safety Program Local units set up mishap prevention programs to comply with wing, region, and national policies The local units safety program must meet the needs of the local unit and identify local risks Rules and Regulations You have to follow Civil Air Patrol regulations.

6 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Safety is a way of thinking and acting that keeps you out of harms way It is everyone's responsibility to promote a safe environment and the commanders responsibility to have a safety program cannot be delegated. Safety is serious business; you must follow regulations. Responsibilities Hand propped starts are prohibited IAW CAP regulations

7 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE They cannot delegate their responsibility for the safety program. However, the Safety Officer position has been created to assist the Commander and is unique in the chain of command. Any Member may stop any CAP activity at any time for safety reasons. Safety Officers administer the unit mishap prevention program for their Commander and can be your contact for any questions or concerns. Responsibilities of all Commanders are:

8 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE This is what the chain of command looks like: 1. Flight or Deputy Commander, as applicable 2. Squadron Commander 3. Group Commander, as applicable 4. Wing Commander 5. Region Commander 6. National Commander If you have a questions about CAP you would want to follow this chain of command.

9 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Each of these Commanders has a Safety Officer : 1. Squadron Commander 2. Group Commander, as applicable 3. Wing Commander 4. Region Commander 5. National Commander If you have a any questions about the safety programs of CAP you can ask either the commander or safety officer following the chain of command.

10 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE If see is hazard or risk, it is ok for the youngest cadet to the most experienced senior member to tell anyone, not necessarily following the chain of command, but to take action and say STOP or Knock it Off: Knock it Off is a term that we may have all heard in our youth, to STOP. In CAP and in the aviation community, the term Knock it Off has been adapted to STOP any activity where a risk or hazard is perceived. Any Member may stop any CAP activity at any time for safety reasons. 1. Flight or Deputy Commander, as applicable 2. Squadron Commander 3. Group Commander, as applicable 4. Wing Commander 5. Region Commander 6. National Commander

11 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Your responsibilities are: For your safety AND the safety of all the team members around you. To be personally honest and to have the highest integrity because safety demands awareness and concern at all times. To say STOP or Knock it Off when you see or know of an unsafe act is the right thing to do! Any Member may stop any CAP activity at any time for safety reasons.

12 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Risks There are risks in all activities. We can identify them before an activity and take steps to minimize them. Every members job is to identify risks. Examples are: Wildlife, i.e. snakes, insects, poisonous plants, etc Rough terrain Road Construction Around aircraft, i.e. propeller operations, dents, leaks, tie-downs, chocks, etc. Hunting areas and seasons If you can think it, it could be a risk If an unsafe act is happening or is about to, it is the duty of every member to try to stop it. You can use the phrase Knock it Off with anyone, anytime. Learn to use safety planning tools (ORM), suggest a safer way.

13 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Operational Risk Management (ORM) Operational Risk Management (ORM) is a process that looks at an event or task that is going to be performed and shows what the risks are and helps members make a decision if the risks are worth taking or to STOP!

14 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE

15 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Operational Risk Management (ORM) These are the Principles of ORM Accept no unnecessary risks Make risk decisions at the appropriate level within the chain of command When the risks are too great, the activity should stop Include ORM in all planning for ALL unit activities

16 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE These are the basic steps of the ORM process: 1. Identify the hazards 2. Assess the risks 3. Analyze risk control measures 4. Make control decisions 5. Implement risk controls 6. Supervise and review Repeat steps one through six as needed Operational Risk Management (ORM)

17 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Identifying hazards in advance is the best way to prevent mishaps Safety improvement or hazard reporting can be done online by filing a Hazard Report through the Safety Forms application in eServices or with a CAP Form 26 (CAPF26). If deemed necessary, this can be done anonymously. At least annually, ORM will be discussed during each units monthly safety briefing ORM training is available for everyone to take online at under the Safety tab. What are ways to identify and communicate hazards

18 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE CAP units have some routine duties to ensure our safety: Safety surveys are performed annually to help identify and report all unsafe acts and hazards. Ground vehicles shall be inspected before each use and there are some checks required to be done monthly Aircraft are inspected before each flight and have checks done after a set number of operating hours. Unit facilities are also inspected routinely to ensure the safety of all members and visitors of CAP

19 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Mishap means any unplanned or unsought event, or series of events, that result in or has the potential to cause death, injury, or damage to equipment or property. Definitions Accident means a mishap that results in death, serious bodily injury, or major damage to, or loss of, equipment or property

20 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Mishap Reporting The overall purpose of mishap reporting and investigation is prevention of future mishaps. Reporting of all mishaps is mandatory. Local mishap reporting procedures ensure the commander and the safety officer are quickly notified of all mishaps within the unit.

21 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Near-Miss and Safety Deviations Close Calls Near-Miss: Any circumstance where the in-flight separation between aircraft constitutes a hazardous situation involving potential risk of collision. (In-flight) Safety Deviation: Any event that is perceived as an unsought safety act, most commonly defined as any act that is non-compliant with CAP rules, regulations, or other defined policies, as well as local, state, or national laws or regulations that could result in injury or damage to CAP members or equipment. (On the Ground) These events should be reported just like a regular mishap.

22 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Reporting CAP Mishaps Some mishaps, near-misses, or safety deviations may not appear to qualify for statistical reporting purposes; however, there may be lessons to be learned from them or they may help in identifying safety trends. Additionally, some mishaps appear to be minor in nature at first, but that may change with time. For the above reasons, all mishaps should be reported. Classification of mishaps will be completed by the National Safety Team and NHQ Safety. Classification definitions are available in CAP Regulation 62-2 (CAPR62-2).

23 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Reporting of ACCIDENTS In all cases of mishaps arising out of CAP activities that can be classified as an accident, an appropriate CAP member (e.g., Activity Director/Commander, Safety Officer, ranking senior member) will: Immediately notify the CAP National Operations Center (NOC) toll-free at , ext 300, (24 hrs/day)

24 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Report, Report, Report If in doubt, report the hazard! If in doubt, report the mishap! Its better to report something if you think it shouldnt be reported, than to not report it and find out it should have been. The unit commander and safety officer will take it from there.

25 Introduction to CAP Safety Program Version 5, , NHQ/SE Investigating Mishaps Death or Bodily Injury Accident When a death or bodily injury accident is involved, there will be no formal or informal investigation conducted by any CAP member unless authorized by the CAP National Headquarters General Counsel office. This will be coordinated with your chain of command and the National Safety Team.
