Safety Briefings

Monthly Safety Education is the key to helping ALL members understand and apply risk management processes to assess hazards and control risk in a wide variety of scenarios

Every unit safety officer is required to provide their members with a safety education briefing each month. The in-person briefing (or virtual meeting) is the preferred method, according to CAPR 160-1. This webpage provides resources you can use to create meaningful presentations that will reinforce member understanding of risk management processes, educate members on the CAP safety program, and help members feel comfortable and confident using risk management in their CAP activities and in their daily lives. Your wing or region director of safety can assist, if needed.
