Abstract : The Health Hazard Assessment Community is developing a comprehensive strategy that builds upon past accomplishments and provides a framework for the Army to meet the growing health hazard challenges we face as we enter the next century. A formal strategy-- focusing on prevention, protection, performance, and sustainment--will provide a mechanism for identifying new opportunities and defining ways to meet this responsibility as part of our mission to maintain a trained and ready Army. This manual is part of the strategy and provides an orientation to the U.S. Army's HHAP for systems acquisition. It is intended for independent medical assessors, CBTDEVs, MATDEVs, and system MANPRINT practitioners and other independent assessors. This manual focuses on practical information in the context of the Army's materiel acquisition process (life cycle system management) and is a resource for individuals striving to eliminate or control health hazards in Army systems.
