Abstract : Just as the Army has changed, so too has the Army Safety Program. Significant is the fact that the Army has changed from an institution that views safety as an external influence, focused primarily on compliance, to one that manages risks to optimize mission effectiveness. I am proud to have been a part of this shift to a new direction and our journey toward integrated risk management. Your safety performance has made a difference in protecting the force. It is paying huge dividends in preserving the Army's warfighting capability. However, we must not lose sight of one thing: any accidental loss of life is unacceptable. The purpose of Countermeasure is to make Army personnel aware of various safety issues.
