  • Executive Summary

    1. Wing Safety office conducted an assessment of the units Mishap Prevention program to evaluate its compliance with regulatory requirements according to United States Law, applicable Department of Defense, Air Force and Air National Guard codes.

    2. Assessment Overview: The goal of the assessment is to identify gaps in the unit Commanders Mishap Reduction Program that exposes the unit’s personnel and Commander unnecessary risk. It should be used to provide unit leadership areas requiring additional resources and support from the Wing Safety office. This assessment is required by Public Law, DOD Requirements, and Air Force Instructions.

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

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

  • DEFICIENCY: A validated deficiency assessed as CRITICAL, SIGNIFICANT, or MINOR.
