SAFETY INVESTIGATIONS AND REPORTS
|Publication Date:||10 March 2021|
Purpose of Investigations and Reports.
Safety investigations are conducted, and safety reports are written, to prevent future mishaps. Legal investigations and boards are conducted for all other purposes. Commanders may not use safety reports to determine whether or not to conduct a legal investigation. (T-1) If initiated, criminal investigations take precedence over safety investigations until criminal activity has been ruled out as possible causes of damage, injury, or death (for criminal investigations, see paragraph 5.11.2).
