Abstract : The Halloween pumpkins are barely off the shelves before the Christmas trees go up in stores, so it's time to think about holiday safety. The holiday period means a lot of soldiers and their families will be on the roads and highways. We want to be sure that nobody's holiday turns into a tragedy, so once again we're warning about drinking and driving, trying to drive too far, and adjusting your speed to road conditions. Apply the same risk-management principles to your off-duty activities as you do on the job: identify hazards, assess the hazards, develop controls and make risk decisions, implement controls, supervise and evaluate. If it works for operating wheels and treads, it will work for your leisure time. Give your POV a safety check-tires, brakes, lights- then as you plan your trip, consciously use the five steps of risk management to be sure that you and your family have nothing but happy memories of the holidays this year.
