Hazard Detection
All   command   aviation   safety   programs   must include   methods   for   checking   the   elimination   of hazards.  Squadron,  group,  wing,  ship,  or  other command  levels  can  identify  recommended  corrective actions.  COMNAVSAFECEN  uses  MISTRAC  to  track completion  of  these  actions. COMNAVSAFECEN  directs  a  MISTRAC  pro- gram designed to track recommendations. MISTRAC files contain a record of recommendations submitted to eliminate hazards. Individual MISTRAC files include a summary of the related mishap or hazard, recommended corrective  actions,  endorsement(s),  and  summary  of action taken. The responsible aircraft operations analyst maintains the aircraft model files. He or she uses those files  to  track  recommendations  to  closure.  Hazards excluded  from  MISTRAC  are  as  follows: Near  mid-air  collisions  (NMACs) Bird strikes Physiological   episodes Embarked  landings Mishaps  and  hazards  not  requiring  endorsement beyond  the  unit  commanding  officer When  corrective  action  is  incomplete,  a  recom- mendation  becomes  a  mishap  and  hazard  recom- mendation  (MISREC)  if 1. it is assigned a risk assessment code (RAC) of I or II and is favorably endorsed by a controlling custodian  or 2. it is designated a MISREC by COMNAVSAFE- C E N . Since a MISREC is considered to have a special status, it is given a separate tracking file. NAVSAFE- CEN tracks each recommendation, regardless of the RAC assigned. Closing out the referenced mishap or hazard requires the action agency assigned to submit a recommendation  or  MISREC.  We  consider  recom- mendations and MISRECs involving incomplete action as  privileged  information. Semiannually  on  1  March  and  1  September, COMNAVSAFECEN provides action agencies with a listing of all MISRECs under their responsibility. This listing  provides  information  those  agencies  can  use  to update the MISREC files. This information includes the MISREC that generated the mishap or hazard summary, all endorsements, and all transactions that have taken place to the date of the report. COMNAVSAFECEN  provides  a  listing  of  all MISRECs  to  the  controlling  custodians  semiamually  (1 June and 1 December) to help in the overall monitoring of  MISRECs.  COMNAVSAFECEN  also  updates MISREC  files  based  on  information  received  from action   agencies,   controlling   custodians,   pertinent mishap  data,  and  other  DOD  agencies. COMMAND  AVIATION  SAFETY PROGRAM The command aviation safety program promotes aviation  safety  through  the  command’s  attitudes  and practices as well as through written policies, procedures, and  plans.  The  aim  of  a  command  aviation  safety program is to end hazards within the command and within  naval  aviation.  In  addition,  the  program  must enhance  the  safety  awareness  of  all  personnel. Safety is an inherent responsibility of command. Thus,  the  chain  of  command  carries  out  the  program. The  command  must  generate  and  carry  out  safety policies  and  directives  based  on  instructions  covering the  many  different  types  of  safety  programs  and processes. The goal of the safety program is to enhance operational  readiness  by  reducing  personnel  deaths  and injuries and material loss and damage. COMMAND  AVIATION  SAFETY RESPONSIBILITIES Although  all  aviation  personnel  are  responsible  for carrying out the command aviation safety program, certain   command   personnel   have   the   primary responsibility  for  the  program. Commanding Officer The commanding officer of an activity appoints an aviation  safety  officer  (ASO)  as  specified  in  the Standard Organization and Regulations of the U.S. Navy, OPNAVINST  3120.32C.  This  instruction  lists  the command  ASO’s  responsibilities  and  how  the  ASO should  establish  the  program  within  the  command. Aviation Safety Officer The aviation safety officer (ASO) acts as principal adviser to the commanding officer on all aviation safety matters.  He  or  she  advises  and  aids  the  commanding officer  in  setting  up  and  managing  a  command  aviation safety program. Providing safety education throughout the command is a responsibility of the ASO. He or she also ensures the incorporation of safety standards and 8-10
