Risk Assessment Matrix
- PURPOSE. To identify
the tactical risk management program for accident prevention in both garrison
and (field) training operations.
- APPLICABILITY. This
applies to all aspects of the ROTC program.
- GENERAL. The Risk
Assessment Management Program (RAMP) provides leaders with a systematic approach
to controlling and reducing risk. It is a process which requires leaders
to identify hazards or risks associated with training events, minimize or
control these risks, and weigh them against overall training value.
Leaders will conduct risk assessments whether formally, during the planning
process of a training event, or informally, while making a hasty plan. All
training and activities require a risk assessment.
- Integrate risk
management into all training and activities from concept through termination.
- Accept no
- Make risk
decisions at the proper level.
- Document risk
- HAZARD CONTROL PROCESS.
- Identify the
Hazards. Hazards are potential sources of danger which may cause injury,
damage, and/or mission degradation. They may be encountered during
training and other activities and include such obvious things as weather,
terrain, weapons, and equipment. Hazards can also be less obvious, such as
a stream that appears shallow, but is actually deep in some places.
