information to other commands who need to take the same or similar corrective action. In the case of some hazards,  the  reporting  command  may  lack  the  expertise to  formulate  recommended  corrective  action. Four hazards require a special HR format: bird (and bat)  strikes;  near  mid-air  collisions;  physiological episodes;  and  embarked  landing  hazards.  When  these types of hazards occur but they do not meet the criteria of a defined aircraft mishap, you must submit an HR. The quality of an HR obviously depends on the quality  of  the  investigation  into  the  circumstances causing the hazard. Commands can, and are encouraged to, use aircraft mishap boards (AMBs) to investigate and report  hazards.  Boards  that  investigate  physiological episodes must, as a minimum, include a flight surgeon. OPNAVINST 3750.6Q recommends that the AMBs conduct both the investigation of the hazard and the preparation of the HRs. The reporting custodian of the naval aircraft, equipment, or facility involved normally submits the report, but any naval activity that identifies the hazard can submit a report. Activities or individuals reluctant  to  identify  hazards  involving  unique  situations or circumstances may submit an anonymous hazard report. Send anonymous HRs by mail directly to the Navy  Safety  Center. No formal deadlines are required for submitting HRs. However, in the interest of safety, you should submit all HRs with a severe risk assessment code within  24  hours  following  detection  of  the  hazard. Submit all other HRs within 14 days following detection of the hazard. Success  of  the  Naval  Aviation  Safety  Program depends  on  the  submission  of  complete,  open,  and forthright  information  and  opinions  concerning  safety matters. The exercise of command influence to edit, change, or in any way censor the content of reports is contrary to the spirit of the program. Nonprivileged Status Do not consider HRs as privileged. HRs and mishap investigation reports (MIRs), which are privileged, are distinctly  different.  The  investigation  and  reporting  of mishaps, not hazards, strictly limits the authority for granting  an  assurance  of  confidentiality.  You  must  take extreme care to avoid giving any impression that HRs are for safety purposes only. The only restriction on their use is that they are used For Official Use Only. HRs should not include personal identifiers, such as names and social security numbers, except as points of contact. Do not ask for such information if you can investigate the  hazard  without  using  such  personal  information. NAVAL AIRCRAFT MISHAPS In  chapter  3,  we  examined  the  causes  and prevention of mishaps as well as reporting procedures. We will now discuss the procedures for reporting naval aircraft   mishaps   and   identify   the   various   injury classifications. Naval  Aircraft  Mishap  Defined What is a naval aircraft mishap? A naval aircraft mishap is an unplanned event or a series of events that comes  under  one  or  both  of  the  following  two categories: 1. Cumulative damage of $10,000 or greater to naval  aircraft,  other  aircraft,  and  property. Property damage costs include those required to repair   or   replace   facilities,   equipment,   or material. 2. An injury involving naval aircraft that results in traumatic bodily harm and causes one of the following   occurrences: a. b. c. d. Death Permanent  total  disability Permanent partial disability One or more lost workdays Traumatic bodily harm includes a cut, burns, a fracture, or poisoning resulting from a single or 5-day exposure  to  an  external  force,  toxic  substance,  or physical agent resulting in one of the four occurrences just listed. Naval  Aircraft  Mishap  Categories The  three  naval  aircraft  mishap  categories  are defined  as  follows: 1. 2. 3. Flight Mishap (FM): FMs are mishaps in which intent for flight existed at the time of the mishap and in which $10,000 or greater damage to DOD aircraft occurred. Flight Related Mishap (FRM): An FRM is a mishap in which intent for flight existed at the time  of  the  mishap  and  in  which  less  than $10,000 damage to DOD  aircraft occurred and $10,000 or more total damage or a defined injury or death occurred. Aircraft Ground Mishap (AGM): An AGM is a mishap in which no intent for flight existed at the time of the mishap and DOD aircraft loss, or $10,000  or  more  aircraft  damage  and/or property  damage,  or  a  defined  injury  occurred. 8-4
