The TRADOC Safety Office serves as the primary staff advisor and subject matter expert on all safety,
accident prevention, and risk management programs within TRADOC and its subordinate commands.


Motivate Soldiers, Civilians, and organizations to adopt safety as a core value; pioneer safety and risk
management initiatives to develop a stronger, more agile Army through the integration of risk management
principles; monitor, assess, analyze, and develop policy, programs, training, and initiatives to
influence Army culture.

Organize and maintain an ACOM safety program tailored to the following institutional and
organizational functions of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command:

  • Army School Operation to include Training and Doctrine

“Nothing in peace time training is worth the cost of a life
as the result of taking unnecessary risk. “

  • Safety is a commander’s program.
  • Safety has direct access to the Chief of Staff and the Commander.
  • Safety is Protection.
  • Risk management is an integral part of everything we do.

Our goal is to institutionalize the RM process so that all Soldiers and Army Civilians
apply it-as a matter of course-in their planning, training and operations. To that end,
commanders shall incorporate RM into their operational routines. This includes regular
use of the process for crisis action and exercise planning, clear guidance in the
commander’s intent on the level of acceptable risk, discussion of risk assessment and
controls at mission briefs, and thorough after-action reports

The purpose of the Executive Safety Council is to provide an overview to Army enlisted
Initial Entry Training (IET) Soldiers about suicidal behavior, and the actions TRADOC
has taken to reduce suicidal behavior and attrition.
