Safety: Off-Duty Awareness Sustains the Force

Mission success always includes safety. When the mission is over, safety doesn’t stop. Safety is as important off-duty for home and family activities as it is for on-duty activities. Sadly, last year, the Army lost 86 Soldiers to off-duty mishaps.

The US Army Combat Readiness Center’s 2022 Off-Duty Safety Awareness Presentation (ODSAP) is now available HERE. The presentation is downloadable and covers topics like:
  • Private Motor Vehicles (PMVs)
  • Privately-Owned Weapons (POWs)
  • Pedestrian Safety
  • Water-Related Activities
  • Sports-Related Activities
  • Home Safety
The sole purpose of ODSAP is to address the activities and behaviors that can lead to off-duty Soldier injuries and deaths. It’s updated annually to provide leaders a timely resource to educate and train their Soldiers on ways to prevent these mishaps.
