Knowledge Newsletter 22-26 Aug 2016

  1. 1. Towing a trailer can be dangerous if you don’t understand how the added weight and length can affect your vehicle’s handling. I was towing trailers not long after I first started driving. At that time, I had no idea what a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combined weight rating even was. I just assumed you hooked the trailer to a truck, jumped in and took off. It wasn’t till several years later that I realized how wrong I’d been. Ever since this incident, I’ve encouraged everyone crewing an aircraft to do their own walk-around. Just because it looks like someone else did your job doesn’t mean it was done right. Risk management, safety and constant planning are a way of life for the military, but so are chaos, deadlines, demands and stress. Sometimes it seems as if there isn’t enough time in the day to accomplish all our tasks, but the job always seems to get done. Make your Soldiers aware of the off-duty hazards they’ll face in the upcoming months with the Off-duty Safety Awareness Presentation. Mentoring can help keep Soldiers safe. Find out what you can do to protect your Soldiers with the Motorcycle Mentorship Program. Knowledge is always looking for contributors to provide ground, aviation, driving and off-duty safety articles. Don’t worry if you’ve never written an article for publication. Just write about what you know, and our editorial staff will take care of the rest.Your story might just save another Soldier’s life. Click the SUBMIT AN ARTICLE tab below to share your story. The latest installment of the Army’s Ready … or Not? campaign is now available and contains a new collection of safety videos, posters and articles to help Soldiers and leaders prepare for the unique challenges the next few months will bring.
