  • No season for risk

    Sep 6, 2013

    Autumn offers something for everyone.

Many Soldiers eagerly await the start of hunting season, while others are ready to start the countdown to time off around the holidays. What we can't look forward to, however, is a "slow" season for safety -- just because the summer is over doesn't mean we can fall into complacency.

  • Recipe for Safety

    Sep 3, 2013

    The Soldier mentality isn't one that usually sets a priority on safety. Most Soldiers instinctively realize that they'll be taking risks consistently throughout their career. Someone scared of risks traditionally isn't the type of person who would even think about joining the military. Col. Timothy Daugherty, brigade commander for the 214th Fires Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, at Fort Sill knew this when he took command in June 2011. With more than 24 years experience, Daugherty knew the thought process of Soldiers, both young and old.

  • From the Director of Army Safety - Taming the dog days

    Aug 1, 2013

    The fact that the fiscal year coincides with the end of summer can be a cruel coincidence for those of us in safety. There's no buffer zone that allows us to bounce back from a bad fourth quarter, which traditionally is our Army's worst time of year for accidents. Slow and steady gains made throughout the year can be diminished quickly by just one or two bad months, and that could kill motivation to keep working toward safety goals. But thus far in fiscal 2013, it looks like we won't have that problem: With about two months left to go, accidental fatalities are still 20 percent lower than this time last year. That decline has held steady for several months now, but to keep it going, we'll have to stay on top of our game through August and September.

    Jul 11, 2013

    In a blink of an eye, the motorcycle was on its side and I was hitting the pavement. There was no life flashing before my eyes and no chance to recover, but there was pain in my left knee and elbow. One second I'm on the bike and the next I'm on the ground next to it. A little shaken and quite embarrassed, I sat there for a minute rattling my brain, trying to think what I could have done wrong. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation RiderCoach then walked over and asked, "What happened?" I honestly had no idea.

    Jul 1, 2013

    Anyone who has ever had a college philosophy class is familiar with the question, "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" Multiple interpretations of the answer have been given by great minds through the years, but one simple premise is this: The lion's share of human perception is made up of only what we actually observe. Trees fall in the forest all the time, but it's not an "event" unless someone is there to see or hear it.

  • The Safety Gamble

    Jun 4, 2013

    After the nationwide frenzy surrounding last month's gigantic Powerball jackpot, I started thinking about odds. The average American stands a one in nearly 176,000,000 -- that's 176 million -- shot of winning any Powerball drawing within his or her lifetime. Yet countless people, including Soldiers and Family members, flock to convenience stores and other lottery outlets week after week, believing they'll pick the lucky numbers. What's puzzling to me, though, is that even while holding on to this far-flung hope, many think an accident could never happen to them.

  • A Deadly Combination

    May 20, 2013

    Growing up in the early 1980s in Mississippi, I performed a number of unsafe activities on a daily basis - whether just for fun or because nobody knew any better. We flew through the woods on dirt bikes, jumped off bridges into the creeks below and operated large farm equipment at way too early an age, just to name a few. I remember being 5 years old and riding on the fender of my grandfather's tractor while he ran the disc over his field before planting crops, usually at a pretty good rate of speed. Looking back, one slip is all it would have taken for me to have been chopped to pieces!
