The Naval Safety Center receives and analyzes all mishap and injury reports submitted by aviation, ship,  submarine,  and  shore  commands.  The  staff indexes   this   information   by   phase   of   operation, material failure, personnel action, or cause factors. It   then   incorporates   the   information   into   the mechanized  data  bank,  through  which  it  can retrieve  the  mishap  and  injury  records  of  any specific  incident.  In  that  way,  the  Naval  Safety Center  can  monitor  mishap  trends  and  pinpoint areas  requiring  corrective  action.  Additionally,  the Naval   Safety   Center   maintains   operational   or exposure data such as the Individual Flight Activity Report and the Diving Log. It uses data from those documents  with  mishap  data  to  determine  the significance  of  factors  involved  in  mishaps. The  Naval  Safety  Center  conducts  safety  surveys upon the request of a unit’s commanding officer. The purpose  of  each  survey  is  to  identify  and  analyze hazards  and  potential  mishap  situations  to  determine preventive action. The Naval Safety Center provides a team of officers and chief petty officers to conduct surveys. These personnel are experts in their fields, and   most   have   been   associated   with   mishap prevention for several years. The survey is informal. Only the commanding officer of the unit involved, and not superiors in the unit’s chain of command, receives the survey results. The Naval Safety Center enters the results into its data base to help analyze and predict potential mishap areas. It also conducts safety surveys of  high  risk  courses  at  training  commands. The  Naval  Safety  Center  also  guides  the incorporation  of  mishap  prevention  “lessons  learned” with new construction and conversion for shipboard improvement and system safety. The center uses the safety   recommendation   (SAFEREC)   system,   ship safety information data base, and mishap and injury reports.  In  addition,  it  uses  casualty  reports (CASREPs)  and  maintenance  data  system  (MDS) reports submitted according to the 3-M system. The center uses these data to recommend improvements in shipboard  and  system  safety.
