ARMY - AR 385-40
ACCIDENT REPORTING AND RECORDS
|Publication Date:||1 November 1994|
This regulation provides policies and procedures and assigns responsibilities for initial notification, investigating, reporting, and submitting reports of Army accidents and incidents. For the purposes of this regulation, an Army accident is defined as an unplanned event, or series of events, that results in injury/illness to either Army or non-Army personnel, and/or damage to Army or non- Army property as a direct result of Army operations (caused by the Army). In addition, a recordable accident (over $2,000 damage to Army property, or a workday lost by Army personnel), when there is no degree of fault by the Army (military or civilian), will be reported and recorded in ASMIS. This regulation also serves as the basis for the following:
a. Complying with the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) (Public Law 91-596), Executive Order 12196; 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 1960; and 10 CFR Part 20.
b. Identifying accident cause factors and system deficiencies and assessing manpower and monetary losses.
c. Developing and maintaining an Army Safety Management Information System (ASMIS) that will enable commanders, system managers, and safety and health personnel to develop accident prevention measures
