HAZARD  REPORTS We  discussed  the  detection  and  elimination  of hazards earlier in the chapter. We will now address the purpose  of  hazard  reports  (HRs)  and  the  procedures  for reporting a hazard. Purpose of Hazard Reports The three purposes of hazard reports (HRs) are as follows: 1. To report a hazard and the remedial action taken so that others can take similar action to eliminate the hazard 2. To report a hazard and recommend that another organization take corrective action to eliminate the  hazard 3.   To   report   a   hazard   so   that   some   other organization   may   determine   the   proper corrective  action  to  eliminate  the  hazard Submission  of  Hazard  Reports You have an obligation to others in naval aviation to report hazards. What is a hazard? As stated earlier, a hazard is a potential cause of damage or injury. You must submit an HR whenever you detect a hazard. Command  safety  programs  must  encourage  personnel to report hazards. If the command expects a hazard to have an effect outside the organization, it must report the  hazard  to  higher  authority. You can send an HR by mail or message with the Naval  Safety  Center  as  the  sole  addressee.  Activities  or individuals  reluctant  to  identify  hazards  derived  from unique  situations  or  circumstances  may  use  this reporting method. COMNAVSAFECEN will protect the source of the report and distribute a sanitized report, as  it  believes  necessary. Reports  may  include  recommendations  for corrective action within the command. In that case, the command  should  communicate  the  mishap  prevention 8-3
