Mishap Investigation & Reporting Toolbox

Courtesy of the USMC Safety & Occupational Health Branch, the following tools and resources have been made available to facilitate proper and effective safety practices throughout the Corps. They were designed for incorporation into organization duty binders, mishap action plans, and safety turnover binders.

  • High Potential Mishaps (HIPOM)
    A quick reference guide for commanders and their safety team which describes specific on-duty mishaps that deserve the same level of scrutiny as a mishap that warrants a formal safety investigation board (SIB). The only difference in the end outcome is the severity of injury or damage. These mishaps meet the DON classification of a near-miss, First Aid, Class-D or Class-C yet they warrant a thorough safety investigation by the unit safety team to ensure the hazardous factors are controlled or eliminated to prevent the probability of a more catastrophic mishap.
  • USMC Mishap Reporting Process Map
    A flow chart for commanders and their safety team which guides the command through the mishap investigation and reporting process as well as the hazard reporting process.
