What army regulation covers risk management

atp 5-19, april 2014

What are the risk management steps?

1. Identify the hazards

2. assess the hazards

3. develop controls and make risk decisions

4. implement controls

5. supervise and evaluate

What is risk management?

Risk management is the process of identifying, assessing, and controlling risks arising from
operational factors and making decisions that balance risk cost with mission benefits (JP 3-0). The Army
uses risk management (RM) to help maintain combat power while ensuring mission accomplishment in
current and future operations. RM applies to operations and to nonoperational activities.

What are the principles of RM?

The principles of RM are—
 Integrate RM into all phases of missions and operations.
 Make risk decisions at the appropriate level.
 Accept no unnecessary risk.
 Apply RM cyclically and continuously

How should RM be applied?

cyclically and continuously

What are the risk levels?

 Extremely high (EH).
 High (H).
 Medium (M).
 Low (L).

How is the level of risk determined?

By using the risk assessment matrix - Table 1-1 ATP 5-19

What are the substeps for step 2 (assess the hazards)?

Estimate a probability for occurance (Frequent, likely, occasional, seldom, unlikely)

Estimate the expected severity of an occurence (catastrophic, severe, moderate, negligable)

Determine the level of risk (extremely high, high, medium, low)

What are the substeps for step 3 (develop controls and make risk decisions)?

1. develop controls

2. make risk decisions

Three categories of controls

Educational controls.
 Physical controls.
 Hazard elimination controls.

What is the criteria for effective controls?

ffective controls meet the eight criteria of effectiveness (see descriptions in table 1-3):
 Feasibility.
 Acceptability.
 Suitability.
 Support.
 Explicitness.
 Standards.
 Training.
 Leadership.
 The individual.

What might you do to implement controls?

Overlays and graphics.
 Drills for vehicle and aircraft silhouette identification.
 Rehearsals and battle drills.
 Refresher training on intensive threat and friendly vehicle identification for all anti-armor and air
defense weapons crews.
 Installation and maintenance of communications links for key civilian organizations.
 Operation of convoys with a prescribed minimum number of vehicles.
 Provisions to carry weapons and wear body armor and helmets when outside secure compounds.
 Accident awareness, safety briefings, and warnings.

What is the army form for deliberate risk assessment?

DD FOrm 2977 - document risk mgmt steps during planning, preparation, and execution

The composite risk management form is now obsolete ( da form 7566)
