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

    Aug 14, 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.

    Aug 1, 2013

    Gunners, patrol personnel, cooks, medics and other Soldiers who wear helmets for long periods of time could get much needed head and neck relief from a revolutionary device developed by U.S. Army Research Laboratory researchers, a new study found.
