The Lessons Learned team creates concise, readable (and sometimes funny) safety lessons to help Sailors, Marines, civilian employees (and their families) avoid repeating a mishap. Our goal is to make people think! We do our best to tell a story people will remember -- that they'll recall when going through their normal day -- that empowers them to identify hazards, accept "ownership" and responsibility for those hazards (in their community, command and home), and take action. We encourage you to submit your safety lessons learned issues and topics directly to the Safety Center Lessons Learned Program Manager. Do you have a safety champion? We want to hear about them. Send your mishaps averted stories to our group email at NAVSAFECEN_CODE522_LESSONS_LEARNED@navy.mil.
