  • 5 Tier Hazard Deficiency Grading Scale
    A validated hazard is assigned a risk assessment code (RAC) as defined in AFI 91-202. RACs are an expression of the degree of risk associated with a hazard or occupational deficiency that combines hazard severity and mishap probability into a single identifier. RACs are identified as CRITICAL, Serious, Moderate, Minor, or Negligible

  • Executive Summary

    1. Wing Safety office conducted a facility inspection to ensure they comply with regulatory requirements according to United States Law, applicable Department of Defense, Air Force and Air National Guard codes.

    2. Inspection Overview: The goal of the safety inspection was to identify hazards and measure compliance with applicable safety guidance and standards. It is required by Public Law that the Safety office perform an inspection of every installation workplace/facility where personnel are regularly employed.

    3. The Wing Safety office will track all facility hazards identified using iAuditor to closure. Supervisors are responsible for updating and closing all facility hazards in their section via iAuditor. Status updates are required every 30 days from supervisors. Instructions for supervisors to use iAuditor are loaded on Safety SharePoint. All identified hazards are in the following report.

    4. Please direct any questions regarding this report to the Wing Safety office.

  • Instructions

  • When a hazard has been identified you can utilize this section to document all elements of hazard. Start by assigning your RAC for the hazard. Provide a brief description of the identified hazard to include specific location of hazard. You will want to assign a Action to the responsible person. The "Action" will allow you to provide recommendations and assign the Office Corrective Responsibility (OCR). Assign OCR by providing the email for the person responsible in the "Assign Action" portion of the Action section. Recommend you provide the RAC Code in front of the recommendation. (for example, RAC 4, Supervisor needs to replace wall outlet cover) The hazard category selection can be used to data mine hazard trends for your organization. Assign a RAC to your identified hazard. You can add as many of these sections as you like.

  • Select RAC and provide description of hazard in "Notes":
