OPNAVINST 3750.6R, Navy Aviation Safety Program, Chapter 2
How does human error contribute to aviation mishaps?
Human error causes an alarmingly high number of mishaps. Human error is part of nearly every mishap. It includes those personnel who may have maintained or repaired equipment or even the worker at the factory where a part was manufactured. Human error involves both physical and mental factors including ergonomics (design of the workplace), physical strength of the individual, physical stress, and mental factors including the person's attitude, behavioral factors, etc.

NAVEDTRA 12971, Naval Safety Officer, Chapter 3
How does maintenance and support contribute to aviation mishaps?
Maintenance and support factors include improper maintenance, improper priority assignments on work requests, or lack of proper quality assurance. Mishaps may occur from the way the manufacturer made, assembled, or installed the equipment. Material damage and personnel injury mishaps can result from improperly maintained equipment.

NAVEDTRA 12971, Naval Safety Officer, Chapter 3
How do administrative and supervisory factors contribute to aviation mishaps?
Reviewing whether regulations and their enforcement by all levels in the chain of command could have contributed to the mishap is essential during a mishap investigation. Mishaps can result from an improper level of supervision or a failure to require personnel to meet personnel qualification standards. They can result from a lack of formal and informal training.

NAVEDTRA 12971, Naval Safety Officer, Chapter 3
How do material failures or malfunctions contribute to aviation mishaps?
Consider all material failures and malfunctions thoroughly, whether the failures or malfunctions occurred because of faulty design, defective manufacture, or repair. Most mishaps blamed on material failure may really involve maintenance factors or human error.

NAVEDTRA 12971, Naval Safety Officer, Chapter 3
How do environmental factors contribute to aviation mishaps?
Very few mishaps are caused by "acts of God." The cause of a mishap may be excessive speed for existing sea conditions or failure to secure for sea. Being struck by lightening may be an act of God, but being outside during a thunderstorm was a contributing cause, therefore, the mishap was probably preventable. Environmental factors include extreme exposure to heat, cold, vibration, noise, illumination, radiation, or atmospheric contaminants.

Discuss the concept of Operational Risk Management (ORM).
Operational Risk Management is a systematic, decision-making process used to identify and manage hazards that endanger naval resources. ORM is a tool used to make informed decisions by providing the best baseline of knowledge and experience available

OPNAVINST 3500.39, Operational Risk Management
What are the 5 steps involved with Operational Risk Management (ORM)?
1. Identify hazards
2. Assess hazards
3. Make risk decisions
4. Implement controls
5. Supervise

OPNAVINST 3500.39, Operational Risk Management
In regards to Operational Risk Management (ORM), define the Identify Hazards step.
Begin with an outline or chart of the major steps in the operation or operational analysis. Next, conduct a preliminary hazard analysis by listing all of the hazards associated with each step in the operational analysis along with possible causes for those hazards

OPNAVINST 3500.39, Operational Risk Management
In regards to Operational Risk Management (ORM), define the Assess Hazards step.
For each hazard identified, determine the associated degree of risk in terms of probability and severity. Although not required, the use of a matrix may be helpful in assessing hazards

OPNAVINST 3500.39, Operational Risk Management
In regards to Operational Risk Management (ORM), define the Make Risk Decisions step.
Develop risk control options. Start with the most serious risk first and select controls that will reduce the risk to a minimum consistent with mission accomplishment. With selected controls in place, decide if the benefit of the operation outweighs the risk. If risk outweighs benefit or if assistance is required to implement controls, communicate with higher authority in the chain of command

OPNAVINST 3500.39, Operational Risk Management
In regards to Operational Risk Management (ORM), define the Implement Controls step.
The following measures can be used to eliminate hazards or reduce the degree of risk. These include: Engineering controls, administrative controls, and personnel protective equipment

OPNAVINST 3500.39, Operational Risk Management
In regards to Operational Risk Management (ORM), define the Supervise step.
Conduct follow-up evaluations of the controls to ensure they remain in place and have the desired effect. Monitor for changes, which may require further ORM. Take corrective action when necessary
