ReportIt

Tuesday October 4, 2011

What is it?

ReportIt is a new, Web-based accident reporting tool that consolidates several existing Army systems into a single, user-friendly reporting application. The program was operationally tested at five select installations (both active and National Guard) prior to its Army-wide release Oct. 3, 2011.

What has the Army done?

ReportIt was designed to simplify and streamline the often arduous and confusing task of accident reporting. The new system features a question-based interface similar to popular tax preparation software that allows any user, even those without previous reporting or safety experience, to perform reporting tasks. Leaders and safety professionals are still able to report injury and loss data for the total force -- whether military, Civilian or contractor -- but with expanded capabilities that provide a more complete picture of accidental loss within our Army.

Why is it important to the Army?

Data entered through ReportIt is stored in the Army Safety Management Information System (Revised), the Army's regulatory system for all information related to accidental loss. Awareness of past and emerging trends allows Leaders to decisively target safety programs toward their unit's most critical issues, and ReportIt's simpler reporting mechanism ensures complete and timely information is available for their use. Soldiers killed or seriously injured in accidents are out of the fight, just like those lost to combat; we must use all tools at our disposal to ensure the safety of the warriors who execute our Army's missions.

What continued efforts does the Army have planned for the future?

The initial ReportIt launch covers both on- and off-duty ground and manned aviation accidents, with additional releases for UAS/aerostat reporting and a portable disc for non-networked systems scheduled through fiscal 2012. Typical of any software program, ReportIt is an evolving platform, and user feedback is critical to the development of future upgrades.

What They're Saying

"I think what we're doing from a training perspective is absolutely essential. It really goes beyond the police. It's the police and the army and what we categorize as the Afghan national security forces, but the training they receive to become a professional, competent, sustainable and enduring force is absolutely critical for them to gain the confidence of the people here in Afghanistan."

- Maj. Gen. Walter M. Golden Jr., deputy commander for police for NATO Training Mission Afghanistan.
