ARMY - DA PAM 385-30
|Publication Date:||2 December 2014|
Applicability. This pamphlet applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, and the U.S. Army Reserve, unless otherwise stated.
This pamphlet establishes a framework for making risk management a routine and required part of planning, preparing, and executing missions and everyday tasks in accordance with Department of Defense Instruction (DODI) 6055.1 and Army Regulation (AR) 385-10. This framework allows Army leaders to operate with maximum initiative, flexibility, and adaptability. Army operations, whether they involve military situations including tough, realistic training, combat operations, contingency basing, or the industrial base supporting research, development, testing, and production, are demanding and complex. They are all inherently dangerous and each has the potential to jeopardize Soldiers and Army civilians, resulting in the needless loss of limited resources. Managing risks related to such operations requires educated judgment, situational knowledge, demonstrated experience, and professional competence. The risk management process enables Army leaders to make informed, conscious decisions to accept risk involving safety and occupational health and other risk factors. For detailed techniques on implementation of risk management in the operational environment, see Army Techniques Publication (ATP) 5-19. ATP 5-19 provides doctrinal guidance on managing risk within the conduct of operations. This pamphlet and ATP 5-19 are designed to be complimentary, and in tandem, they provide guidance on the implementation of risk management throughout the Army.
